    Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead is a Mixed bag of Adventure

    I just finished reading Indiana Jones and the Army of Dead a few minutes ago. As a die hard Indy fan I came to the conclusion the novel is a mixed bag. It defentily is a great adventure story, however it did not have the feel of the Indiana Jones films or novels.
    I do not wish to give away the story to others who are interested in reading it. It's main flaws were the story being set in one location(Haiti), where most Indy adventures cover two to three locations. Another flaw was the potential growth of character for George "Mac" McHale from the film Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
    The thrills were there, from the voodoo priest and his army of zombies. Along with the jungle locations so true to other Indiana Jones adventures. One thing good to see in this novel was the zombies where not George Romero inspired. Instead they were taken from true Haitian folklore, which is a more appealing part of the book. So in conclusion if you are looking for an Indy novel this is mediocore, read Max Mccoy or Rob MacGregor for a good Indy story. However, as an adventure novel it is well worth the read.

    Indiana Jones meets zombis!

    The newest Indiana Jones novel, Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead is indeed a good adventure. The characters are all there, and are fairly well developed.

    People have complained that the character of Mac is not well developed in this novel, and I both agree and disagree with them. He is not well developed in this story. Though I do not believe that this story is suited for the expansion of his character, as say, a novel set when they are spying on the Nazis or (later on) the Reds.

    The villains are all terrifically evil, and one really gets a kick out of seeing zombies (spelled zombi in the book)attack Indiana Jones and his posse of helpers and adventurers.

    Not the best Indiana Jones novel, but a fun addition to the Indy mythos.

    Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead

    Indiana Jones and zombies; what a combination! That's what I thought, but it is not really exciting in Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead by Steve Perry. Indiana Jones is off to Haiti to search for the Heart of Darkness (a black pearl with special powers). But he isn't the only one - so are the Germans and the Japanese! With all this happening there should be a lot of excitement and action. There are some moments that make this book enjoyable, but Indian Jones is better on screen then on paper.
