First the "Planet of the Beast" takes place around the conveniently named Planet #666 which just happens to be the order in which humans discovered it in their search of planets; this in itself is utterly moronic. Second, "Jason X" is the name of the movie not the character however the author seems to insist that's the killer's name now. The mass of inconsistiencies shows the author did no research or possibly never even seen the Jason X movie. She repeatedly comments on Jason's pale cold blue eyes. Did she not even look at the cover photo for her book? Did anyone in editing not see the movie? Jason's eyes, after being transformed are a burning reddish orange, certainly not blue. The author writes about Jason's mouth which is non existant from the new mask. Most damaging (other than the eyes which bothered the crap out of me) is the repetitive statements regarding Jason's extremely fast speed. What??? Jason has never moved fast and even basing it off the Jason X movie, he moved no faster after transformation. Fourth, as another reviewer stated, Jason was a killer not a torturer. The mass amount of dismemberment was boring and nonsensical and was there for the 'gore purpose' only and it falls completely short of that, again hinging on moronic. The author didn't even attempt to explain how Jason revives on Planet #666.
For all my ranting, here is the summation of my view... in short, this book seemed to have been written by a 12-year old and is just simply abysmal. The author didn't care about the book or subject matter, the author had no clue about the subject matter, and the editing was terrible (just the amount of typoes and grammar was disgraceful for any book). I don't expect much from a book based on "Friday the 13th" but I do expect the author to show some ingenuity and/or reasoning in their work.
Even as a fan, you shouldn't read this book. This book doesn't even deserve a 1/4 star for a rating.
So far as I know, New York City was his only trip away from Camp
Crystal Lake until he hit outer space. The character telling this
story obviously was not up-to-date on Jason's history. Other than this, I highly enjoyed the book.
I will read the next book in this series, to see where the ideas go.
