SHOULD MAKE A GREAT FILM!!!!!!!! 2. April 2001
Von jesse - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was so excited to see this book come out the other day, since I so eagerly anticipate the films release. I am an avid fan of the first film (my favorite movie), and Max Allan Collins' book. So I was thrilled to hear he would handle the novela1ation of the sequel. I obviously haven't seen the film yet, so I am unable to make a comparison. But from reading the book, I can say the film is going to be the wildest ride! It is the most epic work, and Collins' deft handling of the humour and human relationships is overshadowed only by his ability to craft rollercoaster chills and blockbuster thrills! His handling of bus chase sequence is a standout among many, and his description of the Scorpion King (The Rock in the film) makes him out to be the ultimate eight-legged terror! I was unable to pu the book down until I was finished, which was only about four hours. The author is so good at hooking his audience into the story (just as writer/director Stephen Sommers). I highly recommend The Mummy Returns, it's 288 pages of pure adventure!

One of my favorite books. 3. Juni 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I got to read "The Mummy Returns" before I saw the movie. What I realized, that not everything the book explains is in the movie. It says that Imhotep said something in the end about love but the movie did not metion that.You have to at least see the first movie to understand the concept of this book and the sequel. Overall, I this is a really awesome book.

Not Quite Mummy Dearest 10. Mai 2001
Von Marc Ruby™ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I greatly enjoyed "The Mummy" when it was resurrected several years ago. I recall late hours spent watching Zacherlee and Shock Theater, entranced by the antics of a whole slew of monsters, with The Mummy being one of the most memorable. In those days movies still had to have plots and spooky atmospherics to do what we do with special effects and a truckload of gore today.
What made the new "Mummy" fun was not just the updated effects. It also had just the right tongue-in-cheek attitude. Let's face it, mummy movies are high camp. Abbott and Costello figured it out first, but it took decades before Universal Pictures discovered the same secret.
When I discovered that the novelization of "The Mummy Returns" was available I snapped it up. After all, paperbacks are still cheaper than movies and they can be re-read. Set 10 years later than the original movie, Rick O'Connell and Evelyn Carnahan have married and have an 8-year-old son, Alex. They have returned to Egypt seeking the Bracelet of Anubis, an ancient artifact associated with the legendary Scorpion King of Egypt's fabled past. In doing so they trigger an adventure that will have them chasing all over the Egyptian map. For, not far from the O'Connell dig, a group of nefarious cultists are once again resurrecting the mummy of the evil Imhotep, the real star of the first movie.
Imhotep's has plans for the Scorpion King and his minions which require the bracelet. He would also like to even the score with the O'Connells, who foiled his first return. When Alex inadvertently puts on the Bracelet of Anubis, and is kidnapped, he triggers a chase scene that stretches from England to Abyssinia. Before Alex (and life as we know it) is rescued, our doughty heroes will be treated to every kind of adventure and mishap, including reincarnation, dirigible rides, pigmy zombies, and the Scorpion King himself.
"The Mummy Returns" is an excellent novelization of what is a movie that is long on fun and action even if it is a bit short on plot. Max Collins does a good job of taking a thin script and turning it into something enjoyable. Don't expect deep insights or serious Egyptology. This is simply a few hours of enjoyable, light entertainment. Have fun!!

As good as the first!!!! 23. April 2001
Von Siren - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This writer is a genius!! His storytelling is superb! I read the first Mummy and then saw the movie. I have read many movie adapations and by far, he is the best adapter of them all. When I heard this one was being released, I immediatly bought it. And as with the first, was never disappointed. He expresses wonderful emotions throughout. His descriptions of the events and how the characters look and feel is incredible!! I am already looking for other books by this author! Another thing about how he writes, you don't feel disappointed when you see the movie. I feel weary reading the book first, before the movie. But never get disappointed! A MUST read for ANY mummy fan!!!!!

A Terrible and Offensive Book! 26. Januar 2004
Von "mummyfan" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
My friend and I have watched the movie a zillion times, and have memorized almost every line. We wanted to read this book because of our love for the movie. This book was the WORST book based on a movie I've ever read! The dialogue was awful, and so were the character portrayals! Evie is portrayed as a racist snob commenting on Ardeth's people ("Yes, such amusing notions these primitives have."). Rick is portrayed as a stupid smart-aleck welcoming Izzy ("Izzy! Is you is or is you ain't my baby!"). Alex is portrayed as a whining baby saying to Lock-nah ("I'll just pee in my pants, and I'll tell your boss lady you wouldn't let me go to the bathroom..."). Meela/Anck-su-namun is portrayed as a smart, upbeat woman saying to Jonathan ("You see, I have a photographic memory..."). Jonathan is portrayed as a wise-cracking idiot replying to Meela ("That's a coincidence. I have a pornographic memory, myself."). Imhotep is portrayed as a weak, sympathetic man when he is barely able to lift Alex up, and then wags a finger at him, scolding him ("Naughty, naughty."). Also, some of the dialogue was not set in the right time period (1934). For example, Alex says that his visions are "better than a ViewMaster," and Jonathan says that a picture looks like a "surveillance photograph." I was VERY offended at how this book was written! If you LOVE the movie, DON'T buy this book!
