This novelisation, in contrast with some others I've read, does not add a whole lot to the world of Interstellar as seen in the film. There's very few inner monologues and thoughts of characters that contribute to our better understanding of them, and just as few science explanations to tide over the curious. It's simply the screenplay turned to prose, which might work well for some; I have to admit I need my books to be a bit more meaty than that. I expected backstory, flashbacks, thoughts we never got to see in the film... if you did too, maybe just put the movie back on.… (més)

That was a good book. Concise, focused and interesting all the way through, in a way the other books of the series just haven’t been to me. In addition to introducing the Yuuzhan Vong Shapers and Shamed Ones, it dived deeper into the society and highlighted internal contentions.

The story in this book is tolerable but only because the plots are largely supported by the fantastic game content of the Elder Scrolls series. The main characters are shallow and the side-characters are mostly mysterious types (read: also shallow, due to the fact that 'unknown past, unknown emotions, unknown motives' is a fantasy cliché since Aragorn). It's a shame, since I expected a lot of a novel that builds on the enormous collection of lore, lands, creatures and races that the Elder Scrolls comprises. The abrupt end of the book is frustrating because it smells of cheap soap opera. I'm going to find out if the sequel is any better. If not, I won't be surprised. If it turns out that the ending of the series is deeply inspiring, this book was just the authors way of finding his pace. After all, it's not easy to write a novel about such a popular and well-loved game setting, just as it isn't easy to make a good movie out of a good book.… (més)

Essentially the same as the previous two books, which is to say engaging. Like the characters, like the story. I'm a bit confused about hoe everything Will tie together, but that should be resolved in the last book...
