Any fan of the Back to the Future triology who wants to be able to take the movie with them should think of picking up this book. One of my favorite movies of all time, Back to the Future Part II goes just as well in book format.
The second part of the famous trilogy , starts off right where the first one ended. Doc Brown shows up in his time traveling Time Machine to take Marty and his girlfriend Jennifer to the future to fix a problem with their future kids. Little do they know that their troubles are far from over after they arrive there. Biff steals the time machine from the future and hands himself a sports almanac giving all the scores for the next half centruy. The time line is totaly changed and its up to Marty and the Doc to fix things before its to late by going back to 1955 where the trouble starts.
The great thing about the book is that it gives more detail then the movie. It goes into what the characters are thinking that we can't see during the movie and gives details that were cut out of the movie as well. Theres a part where Marty meets his brother Dave in an alternate 1985 and his brother is drunk and a bum to say the least. Another moment where the old farmer Peabody from the first movie shows up trying to still get at the DeLorean that busted up one of his pines is pretty intersting as well. Theres also a lot of description of the moments we find ourselves in, so we can pretty much see the movie without having to actualy see it. Its very true to the movie and I think captures the great sequal quite well in book form.
The only true problems I have with it is that they did edit out the curses and even not so bad words making them even nicer then they were.

"Back to the Future, Part 2: A Novel" is so cool! I love the movies, and when I found this book for sale used, I jumped to buy it. Even though I didn't read the first book, I still enjoyed part two. It's a very faithful novelization of the movie, and I found it most interesting to know everyone's thoughts. I must read for a fan of the movies. I recommend.

This book was so cool. My son and I both loved it. The story was original and its view of the future was fun. They even have floating skateboards called "hoverboards!" All of the time travel stuff was confusing, especially since the author keeps referring to stuff that happened in the past. I'd like to hear that story, about how the characters Doc and Marty met. Maybe there will be a "prequel." Also there are lots of cool illustrations in the book with real people acting out the action on the page. Aside from being fun, the book makes you really think about the big issues. Like, will time travel ever really happen, and would it be in a car?

They should make this into a movie! Hollywood is out of ideas anyway.
