I felt the need to get ready for the new movie.Reading the novel adaptation brought me back to that high school vacation week when I went to the dollar theater every day to see the original movie. Reading the book, I felt the sensations that I still get when I watch the movie.One situation that I am glad was cut fromt he original movie - Marion's attraction to Belloq. YUCK!
Raiders of the Lost Ark was a very enjoyable book. It went into to detail and made it more fun then the movie. Don't get me wrong, I love Raiders, but the book is great.
