Overview

Experience the vast tapestry of After Earth in a novelization unlike any other: a thousand-year saga featuring original content from the mind of Peter David, the veteran sci-fi author who helped develop the richly imagined universe. This is the complete, never-before-seen chronicle of the extraordinary family that’s been across the universe and back—from humanity’s last days on Earth through the events of the epic film!
 
RAIGE RUNS IN THE FAMILY
 
General Cypher Raige of the United Ranger Corps is only the latest in a long line of heroes. For a thousand years, ever since the globe was engulfed by environmental apocalypse, the Raiges have been instrumental in humanity’s survival. They led the way as the survivors abandoned Earth, settled an uninhabitable planet called Nova Prime, withstood an onslaught from a mysterious alien force, and carved out a new home in the farthest reaches of the galaxy.
 
Now Cypher has returned to his family after an extended tour of duty. For his thirteen-year-old son, Kitai, tagging along with his famous father is the adventure of a lifetime—and a chance to salvage their relationship. But when an asteroid collides with their craft, they make a crash landing that leaves Cypher seriously—perhaps fatally—wounded.
 
Kitai Raige has always wanted to prove that he has what it takes to live up to his illustrious name. Now, all too soon, he gets his chance. With his father’s life on the line, Kitai must venture out into the strange, hostile terrain of a new world that seems eerily familiar: Earth.

This was a movie turned into a book. The charactrrs are two hour movie deep. Still good, some great insights and history. Character development is not bad, maybe incomplete. Note the three shorts after the primary story were in some ways better than the main story. Can't wait to see the film.

A different take on the average father, son story with the great mix of action, emotion, cliff hangers, and a basic alien apocolypse story twister! A must read, must have story and movie!!

I love the story, plot, characters, and is very well written. I saw the movie and it was amazing so I figured the book might be great as well. Don't get me wrong, I love it but just can't have read the book. It has language where they could have used another word or they just don't need it! I only read a little 'til I had to stop, because of the language. I am 13 and I love the story but I just wish there was no language. Why do people even have to add that to a book? They didn't need to add it, some of it was like, blank he thought or pretty blank good. I mean really? I reccomend seeing the movie and not reading the book. Jaden Smith did an amazing job and I hope he does more movies soon!
