The trilogy starts off interestingly enough, but loses steam towards the end of the finale. It's not as action-packed as one would expect, but the story still kept me going until the end. I haven't seen the original miniseries, though, so I can't comment on if or how it deviates.
The book reads like an original novel instead of one based on a movie or TV show. Those who have had problems with previous novelizations of other entertainment will likely have no such qualms with this one.
- Sex: An Oedipus-style relationship is implied, though not discussed in graphic detail.
- Nudity: None that I recall.
- Language: Occasional usage of the d-word.
- Violence: A bit of fantasy action, some of which involves people being killed, but nothing graphic.
- Drugs: None that I recall.
- Frightening/Intense Scenes: If you're old enough to understand this series, there's likely nothing in it that will freak you out.
- Other: Some criticism of the Christian faith, a la Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, might bother some readers.
