    A fun little read for lovers of the film The author adds a bit here and there, alters things in other places Isabeau is decidedlyhelpless and waifish here than she is on screen Navarregruff 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 inte A fun little read for lovers of the film The author adds a bit here and there, alters things in other places Isabeau is decidedlyhelpless and waifish here than she is on screen Navarregruff 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 quite differently than I or the actors seem to do I do wish there had beento 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 muchdepth 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 goe Bought this because I loved the movie as a teenager Surprisingly, there is not muchdepth 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

    3.5 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.

    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 quivers in a tree next to his head.Still, 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 a 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 quivers in a tree next to his head.Still, 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 movie.You 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 nex 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 movie.You 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 fordepth,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 name I 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
