4.0 out of 5 stars Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, August 10, 2006
This review is from: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (Paperback)
ISBN 0394845943 - I'm reposting almost my entire review of ISBN 034536161X Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade here, because I don't find any real, important differences. Back to books related to WWII and religious artifacts. As a group, these books are interesting if only for the complete effect - from Ludlum's The Gemini Contenders to The DaVinci Code to Indiana Jones, the differences and similarities in the tales are fascinating.

Indy begins the book by closing out his nearly lifelong chase after the Cross of Coronado. Ready for a return to the academic life, he returns late for the school year, only to find that his father is missing. Henry Jones has his own lifelong chase nearing an end - he appears to be within sight of the Grail Cup, and there are several groups of people who will do anything to beat him to it. Nazis, Henry's assistant Elsa, and a secret Brotherhood all have their eyes on the same prize, for their own reasons. Who will reach it first isn't nearly as important as who will be allowed to claim it.

As adventure books on the subject go, The Last Crusade is an odd mix of lightheartedness and murder, which detracts from the excitement of the story in the book but played well in the movie. Between editions, I like this one for the movie photos, but other than that, same thing!
