Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have never been disappointed in a Max Allan Collins novel. The Iowan is a capable writer who also has several mystery and adventure series under his belt. This venture simply adds to his reputation.
His novelizations resonate well with the source films and yet are enough different to warrant handing over a few bucks. You get more than a sorry re-hash of the movie; you get a great story teller who backgrounds you and spins a yarn as complex and compelling as anything on the screen.
The pace in book version *The Scorpion King* is wildly frenetic. Action is fast and furious, and enemies fall by the hundreds. Yet it's a fun ride. Mathayus is more fully developed as a character, albeit an action character. Mr. Collins gives Mathayus enough brains and brawn to get into, and out of, trouble. Plus Mr. Collins pays gentle homage to the first of the fictional warrior kings, Conan the Barbarian.
What a sequel! Conan the Barbarian meets The Scorpion King. . .
Highly recommended.

This book was great. Everything to make me want to see the movie. Adventure, Action, Comedy, A little bit of romance--yes, it was a great book. Completely orginal story. Frankly, I thought it would [be bad]. I thought how stupid, The Scorpion King? The only reason I was sightly intrested in it was because The Rock starred in it and it was kind of a Mummy Movie. Let me say, if the movie is anything like the book, it could possibly be the best movie in the Mummy series. This book is worth your time, you cannot be dissapointed, if you like the Mummy stuff.

This book isn't bad, it follows the movie pretty well. But it doesn't give huge insights into anything, which is what I'd hoped for.
Young men will probably enjoy it well enough. For others that aren't complete die hard fans, skip this and read the Mummy books by the same author instead.
