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. I do feel it took a little away from the book as there aren't that many curses in the movie as it is and it was noticible. Also some of the scenes seemed rushed through towards the end. A lot of the stuff at the end of the 1955 climax of the movie just didn't come off as exciting as it did in the movie. While I know its hard to do a non stop action scene like the tunnel chase where Marty has to get the almanac off of Biff's car in a book, it still came off as half as exciting as it truly was.
Its great to be able to take with you though whereever you are. you can't always bring a VCR or DVD player with you, but this book can always be in hand and it is defiitely a worth while buy as its as much fun as the movie and the movie is one of the greatest sequals of all time.
The printing of the novel, by Headline, isn't all that great. As with the first book it is long out-of-print, which really puzzles me as BTTF has been a very popular brand name for almost 30 years and new printings of all three novels sell. There's no reason for any of them to be low-grade pulp only found in second hand stores.
Fans of the film still need to own it as it a fun, breezy read.
They should make this into a movie! Hollywood is out of ideas anyway.
