    A fun little read for lovers of the film The author adds a bit here and there alters things in other places Isabeau is decidedly helpless and waifish here than she is on screen Navarre gruff Phillipe is Phillipe The actors do actually give much better performances of these characters and lines than they are depicted in this novelization How does this work I wonder? Does the author get a script and just work from there? Do they just write from watching the film? If so Vinge interprets multiple things uite differently than I or the actors seem to do I do wish there had been to this story back in the day I always wanted to see the happily ever after part and find out what happened to Phillipe and Imperius Ah well Now to watch the film again

    Bought this because I loved the movie as a teenager Surprisingly there is not much depth to the book there is little additional detail about how the characters are feeling; the dialogue and script are an almost word perfect match; and virtually the entire book was included in the movie I enjoyed this book because of it's association with the movie But without that it falls into the category of a light romance that dabbles at being a fantasy novel in a historical setting This one goes on my shelf of books to read when I am looking for light entertainment that shouldn't be taken seriously

    35 stars rounded up The film is a 5 star watch for me but the novelisation went the way of most novelisations of films I liked it's all better on screen

    It's been awhile since I read this book but I do recall enjoying it as much as I loved the movie There were extra scenes that went into detail of scenes from the movie The scene where Mouse is telling Navarre about what Isabeau spoke the night after the wolf hunt is an example Which is one of my favorite scenes from the movie Did you know that hawks and wolves mate for life? The bishop didn't even leave us that Not even thatI think that is one of the most heart wrenching scenes in the movieIf you like the movie Ladyhawke I believe you will enjoy the book

    One of my all time favorite movies so of course I had to have the book as well

    Can't say I'm too fond of the graphics for this novelization of Richard Donner's 1985 cult classic film Ladyhawke Check out some of the movie posters and you'll see these soaring fantasy paintings; the cover of this one just has Matthew Broderick looking a little downcast while a two handed broadsword uivers in a tree next to his headStill the book hews pretty close to the film You may prefer this if you want the narrative without the Alan Parsons Project Alternatively if you miss the anachronistic soundtrack you can just play The Essential Alan Parsons Project on a loop while reading this

    Well I finished my second book of the week Ladyhawke by Joan D Vinge Yeah it's the novelization of that classic 80s adventure movie about a man and woman who are cursed by an evil bishop He's a wolf by night She's a hawk by day so they can never be together as man and woman Awesome movieYou know how when there's a book based on a movie or vice versa and people always say The book was better? Well this one wasn't I didn't care for it much I went to a movie once and I sat next to a blind girl and her sighted friend All through the movie the friend was telling her everything that was going on up on the screen He's walking across the room He's picking up the cup He's handing it to her Well this book was sort of like that Just a word for word description of everything that happened in the movie It was bland It was kind of boring I was hoping for depth back story I was hoping to be lost in the world and discover new insights into the characters their thoughts and feelings There was none of that The most I got out of it was Oh So that's how you spell the guy's nameI guess it works much better when the movie is based on the book This one was the other way around Blah And it was uninspired like she took the job but didn't really want to do it and just got it done in the most minimalist way possible Other than a few sloppy adverbs and clunky similes Her eyes were like emeralds there was no flare to the writing Even the climax of the book seemed rushed and missing all kinds of details It was like she was on a deadline and had to get it finished and out the door As a writer this book hammered in the importance of making the reader care about your characters This book just sort of assumed you'd seen the movie and rode on its own coattails If you hadn't seen the movie you probably wouldn't have even the finished the book Anyway I don't recommend it I only read it just to say I finally finished it Just watch the movie It's a better experience and it takes a lot less of your time The movie was awesome one of my lifelong favourites
