Quickie Book Review: "Apocalypse" by Peter and Paul Lalonde
Review: I got this movie novelization as part of a free book giveaway, so, frankly, I wasn't expecting much. Still, upon reading it, I found that the writing was much better than usual for a book based on a film or television show; it actually felt like an original story. I'd avoided the movie previously--I mistook it for Countdown: Jerusalem, which is supposed to be among the worst flicks ever--but, now, my curiosity is piqued for not only Apocalypse, but the rest of the film quadrilogy as well. The one qualm I do have is that the book is short and ends abruptly; you should have either the remaining films or books on hand, because you'll definitely want to know what happens next.
