I picked up the Ghostbusters movie adaptation as a lark, thinking I'd find just another "put it on paper" movie adaptation full of lackluster, rushed words, whose sole purpose was to fill pages and get a book version on the newsstands while the movie was still hot. Another exercise in mass-media marketing, with more time spent on the cover than on the content, basically. From the first page of Ghostbusters, it became aparrent that this would *not* be just another "tie-in." The book contains more material than the movie itself could have ever hoped to, and is written in an entertainingly colorful language, obviously meant for someone other than the expected child "target audience" Ghostbusters and it's related cartoon sequels have recently been aimed at. Likewise, the book contains scenes and information which never made it into the final film, serving to flesh the tale out. You'll learn about Peter Venkman's childhood life with a carnival sideshow, where he honed his salesman's eye - The devistation and approaching end of the world as viewed by two "street people" - and even Ray Stanz's less-than-fearsome rendesvous with an attractive female ghost. There are very few movie/novel adaptations that I would consider worth the time to read. The Original "Blues Brothers" novel, the "Back To The Future" adaptations of Craig Shaw Gardner, and Ghostbusters are the only three.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super Reader August 29, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"If someone asks you if you are a god, you say Yes!"

A highly original blast of a story is Ghostbusters, and the novelisation of the same is pretty decent.

When a few dodgy parapsychologist researchers stuff up in a university, they start their own business, little expecting they will soon be overalls and proton packs deep in spooks.

Very funny.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't live up to expectations April 10, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read the 1984 Ghostbusters: Novel by Larry Milne a few years back and I found it to be an affable, if hardly spectacular novelization which felt like a cut-and-paste job a little too much. It lasted only 164 pages and failed to deliver anything beyond what we saw in the movie. Despite the subtitling of 'The Supernatural Spectacular' this second attempt also falls short.

Five years later, to coincide with the imminent release of Ghostbusters II, the was novelized again by a new author. Richard Mueller works with the original screenplay before the post-production re-ordering that changed the flow of the middle section of the movie. The Fort Detmerring sequence that you've all heard about is presented here in the novel, but nothing really happens and it still doesn't fix the chronology errors in which Winston proclaims to have worked for the company for a couple of weeks but clearly has only been with them for a few days (or, even worse, just one day in the movie). Mueller also makes strange description choices such as calling the stick of the proton pack an 'induction rifle'. Venkman called it a 'positron flyer' in the movie. He censors all of the mild swearing from the movie also, but strangely doesn't seem to mind referring to sexuality and porno movie theatres. If he was toning down the language to make it suitable for kids I imagine he only led to a lot of awkward questions back in 1989 with kids asking their parents what porno is.

5.0 out of 5 stars totally worth it. August 14, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am part of a newer generation of ghostbuster fans. I wasn't even born when the movies came out and i never really paid attention to the cartoons that followed. However finally haveing a chance to see the movie led me to try and find this book. I was hesitant on buying it since i have never had a book that was $40 other than a college text book but they are more easiy replaced compered to this. The book was great. Im glad I bought it. there was so much depth added to all the charaters even the one that dont really seem like they need any background. Its a great read for any ghostbusters fan but i would be careful if you have it areound kids. the first reason being that its a hard to find book, the second being that the content isnt really kid friendly so i wouldnt recommend it as a bedtime story (my aunt wanted me to read it to my little cousin) But as I said it is a great book :)
