    This book, written by Steve Perry (who has written numerous Star Wars novels), was released a bit over a week ago. It is on my Amazon.com wishlist, will order it when the SW novel Deathtroopers is released in a week or so.

    Just curious to know if anyone here has read it, and what there thoughts and opinions are on the book? I have never read an original Indy novel, and I am kinda looking forward to reading this.

    I haven't read it. Ive never actually read any Indy book except for the exceptional Behind the Trilogy book released last year.

    I haven't and likely won't unless someone gives a great recommend.

    Let us know when you're finished.

    I'm curious though. What time period is this in?

    I'll copy and paste my review that I posted over at the Raven.I'm far to lazy and tired to write out a review..Careful..Spoilers do apply!


    Just finished the book about an hour ago.I pretty much enjoyed it though,I could have used a little more action.A solid 4 out of 5 if you ask me....

    Pros:
    (Spoilers do apply!)

    *Indy using his whip to help defeat Boukman.Very bad ass!

    *Indy and Mac using actual archeology tactics while looking for a place to dig for the pearl.

    *General Yamada...Samurai sword...Zombie head...'nuff said..

    Cons:
    Not to much action in the beginning.I would have liked to have seem some WWII mission involving Indy and Mac spying on the Nazis.

    All in all,Like I said 4 out 5.Pick it up if you havn't,It's a pretty solid Indy adventure



    That being said,It's on par with the MacGregor and McCoy Indy novels and it's obviously MILES better than the two Indy novels that Caidin wrote.

    The #3 pro was [face_laugh]

    This actually sounds pretty good. I think it might make a good stocking stuffer from my own Elsa. :*

    I read it, and pretty much liked it. Boukman was the best character in the novel IMHO, and I found the parts told from his POV fun to read. I found, though, that other parts of the book weren't that great; too much time was spent on the Nazis, Japanese, and Indy and co. traipsing through the boring ol' jungle doing nothing particularily exciting or interesting.
