Naturally, I read it while outside (as all great adventure stories should be enjoyed....though I confess I used bug spray to keep my time distraction free....) and the quality of the piece and the production design make it well worth the price of admission.
The story has been streamlined, omitting stuff unpalatable by today's standards, and added elements that stay true to the story.
This is an updated version and there are some changes from the original, some of them big. This has been a trend in Hollywood for some time (Transformers, TMNT, etc) and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. This is one of those times that it does. Well worth the time and the pleasure of reading.
The only drawback that I had with this, is that I got the eBook version, and quickly discovered that comics on the tablet are not my cup of tea. I am eagerly awaiting my physical copy so that I can enjoy it even more.
