I’ve reviewed a novelization before here at the Spotlight, and my next Chapter By Chapter review will be another novelization. These books are often based on early versions of the script plus adding their own flair. For example, aliens creating the oxygen machine turning out to be giant sentient ants with a plan as convoluted as the villain’s. They may also add their own ideas to flesh out the book length. It’s why I like them even if I’ve seen the movie. Someday I’d like to do a video review series on them in the (reverse) vein of The Book Was Better or Lost In Adaptation. I.M. Fletcher of Paperback Cinema looks at five rather unusual novelizations and what makes them stand out.

A would be comic writer looking to organize his living space as well as his thoughts. So I have a blog for each goal. :)

  1. I’m excited to read your thoughts on your next book. I’ve always find it funny when there is a novelization for a movie that was already based on a book, or short story, like Total Recall.
