I haven’t seen The Explorers, the 80s science fiction movie about kids building their own spaceship. I was just never drawn to it for some reason. However, I do find differences between a movie and novelization interesting. So I still liked this review by Shawn Robare of Branded In The 80s as he looks over the novelization of The Explorers and seems to prefer the book.
(I also finally added a “book spotlight” category and moved Chapter By Chapter to it.)
