Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you’re a Man of Steel fan, don’t miss this chance to relive the film in a different medium -you’re sure to enjoy it! And, if you’re one who feels that the Man of Steel film just barely missed the mark, then do yourself a favor and take a second look at this tale of Kal-El by reading Cox’s excellent take on Snyder’s film!” – Fanboy Comics 

“The narration in Man of Steel does an excellent job at fleshing out some aspects that didn’t actually come across during the movie.” – Renegade Cinema

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This wonderful novel expands upon and even clarifies what happened in the movie. You understand much more of Lois's inner thoughts about Clark, as well as Clark's torment at the end of his battle with Zod. I read this book with the soundtrack in the background and I felt I was in the theater. It is not a in depth read, but it is a fun read and helps to expand upon this great movie.

I bought this as soon as it was available.
It adds scenes that aren't in the movie, and explains anything in the movie that was slightly confusing. I'm assuming that these added scenes will be included in the "Director's Cut".

Very well written. One reviewer mentioned playing the soundtrack while reading. I haven't done that yet, but it sounds like a richer experience.

Buy this book people. For seven bucks? It's a more visceral experience reading it in this book that watching the movie. It's that well written.

Man of Steel is like watching the movie come to life right in front of you. What a blast. The book captures everything that the movie has. Greg Cox has done it again. I have been a big fan of Superman for a long time and this story gives the character even more clarity to what he really is. I have seen the movie and it is worth the price to see.

The novel improves on the movie's sometimes choppy pacing, thanks to chapter breaks and time tags. Cox has a readable style, aside from the occasional obscure word that may tempt you toward a dictionary. Some chapters include frequent shifts in point of view from paragraph to paragraph, but it always flows well.

We delve a bit into the minds of various characters, from Clark/Kal-El, all the way to Zod, but the internal dialogue is mostly passing one-liners.

LOIS: "What is it with the Kryptonians and scary pseudopods?"

If you disliked the movie, but felt the story and plot were salvageable, then I definitely recommend this. If you loved the movie, sure, buy the novel, if only to show Superman's latest reboot your full support.

Having loved man of steel the movie, I decided to read the novelization. Much like Mr. Cox adapt of other series, it was a fun read that carried the adventure of the movie across. A good book for any superman fan.

Book was OK, but followed movie exactly, including all descriptions of scenery, all verbal communications, etc. I was hoping, as the norm, the book would be better than the movie, but they are the same.
