Overview

X-Men by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Dean Wesley Smith

It's the movie event of the year--and the action-packed book you've been waiting for.

Outcasts from society, the X-MEN are genetic mutants, born with superhuman powers, who harness their special abilities for the greater good. But the human race they fight to protect rejects and fears--even hates--them.

Not all mutants seek to protect mankind. One terrorist group--led by the supremely powerful Magneto--seeks to strike first. Battling against prejudice and agents of intolerance, the X-MEN must establish a peaceful coexistence between mutant and mankind or they will surely perish . . .

An awsome companion to the movie, or as a great stand alone novel! Very highly recommended!

This book captures many of the adventures of the X-Men, but I happen to like Wolverine the best. If you're a die-hard X-Men/comic fan then buy this book and enjoy.

I loved how they told how each mutant was described in the begining (including scott, storm, and Magneto.) This was just like the movie with more dtials and different parts to it. It was one of the best books I have ever read!!!!

If you've seen the movie or not, you must read this book! Right from the start you get hooked in it's action packed sequences. It goes into more detail about the characters and gives each of them a larger part. I couldn't put it down! I finished it in 2 days (although it's a rather large book) and I was amazed at how it pulls you in even after I own the movie and have seen it so many times! You will love this book and it is definately worth buying.

This was a great book to read, I'm an X-man fan and I thought because it was a movie tie in book that it won't be good, But was I wrong! To new X-men viewers it told all about the characters past, so they would know where the character is coming from. Read this book! It is a great book and awsome movie!

This was a *FANTASTIC* book and they wrote it superbly! But, being the thorn-in-the-side that I am, there was only one problem with it: Logan/Wolverine only has *three* claws, whether it be the comic, the cartoon, or the movie... :)

The book was great. I loved it. It is a book that people can relate to. It has everything from racist issues to politics today. The characters are wonderful and they do a really good job at showing what people have to go through today. It is a great book and is worth reading. Can't wait until the movie.

No novelization is worth reading because of its artistic merit, of course. The only thing they're good for is giving fans a sneak peek at the movie. Considering how long we've waited for this movie, some of us just can't wait to find out if the movie will be silly or cool. Read this and be relieved! The plot is decent, and most of the characters are true to their roots.

X-men the movie is a fast paced novel with plenty of action. The story is a little difficult to accept at the beginning if you are familiar with the comic x-men or are a long time fan because of the way several of the characters come into their abilities. But reading past this small stumbling block, the story continues following the basic x-men plot. Magneto is definitely a must see super villian; at his best, even without the visual effects just from the story you know he's all business. The X-men and, especially Xavier, have their work cut out for them if they plan to face off with the master of magnetism. Even if you are not familiar with the x-men this book is a great place to start. If you can't wait for the movie, the movie tie is a definite must buy.

Just finished the novel for x-men and it looks as though my fears of the movie sucking have been in vain. the authors do a great job of telling you the action without being boring or dry. This added with good character development make x-men a great read
