Book Review: The Chronicles of Riddick by Alan Dean Foster | The BiblioSanctum

Oct 26, Manuel rated it it was ok. Mass Market Paperbackpages. Stick to the movie! Nov 04, Jim rated it really liked it. Action adventure set on other planets Email required Address never made public.

I’m guessing that was a last minute script change that made it into the movie, much like Leia and Han’s “I love you” “I know,” which was not in the novelization. Aaln it gets 4 stars because it is beautifully crafted. Riddick is on some small frozen zlan ball world, away from everyone, but some bounty hunters find him and with such a large price on his head for capture, they figure that it worthwhile to go get him.

Foster did not let me down with the sultry blade that is Dame Vaako. Added some emotional depth to the characters, but no additional story. I couldn’t even chronidles to tell you what it was, but something was definitely missing for me. That said, the book follows almost every step, every scene, dfan the movie. She sometimes imagines that he smirks but doesn’t quite know if she’s seen it or not. Easier to move a mountain.

Our Goodreads lists are an eclectic assortment of genres — and we love to share our thoughts. Foster began his career as an author when a letter he sent to Arkham Collection was purchased by the editor and published in the magazine in So I feel like I should give Foster credit for capturing both the vibe of the film and showing such patience with our illustrious star.

There is only the very specific mood that the author wants me to experience, and his storytelling squeezes me uncomfortably into that box. While dealing with these invaders the unthinkable happens.

May 25, William Maxwell rated it it was ok. Thanks for telling us about the problem. They do make sense, but it’s how Riddick is now portrayed that has me rolling my eyes. This interest is carried over to his writing, but with a twist: One by one, he pushed back hoods and examined faces.

Book Review: The Chronicles of Riddick by Alan Dean Foster

He needs me to see the monsters as monsters and everyone else as scared cattle or maybe less potent monsters. The Director’s Cut of “Chronicles of Riddick” the movie is a stark contrast to the theatrical release; the DC could arguably be one of the best scifi pieces done to date. Return to Book Page.


There is no room for my observation or my opinion. Normally this means extra background and insights into characters, possibly what the characters are thinking etc that help add to the overall story and make it oc and often better than the movie.

Primal yet exacting, the deaan word conservationist, quick witted, and strong beyond understanding.

Well it’s almost if that can be possible worst than the former. If the universe and the story were more interesting it may be worth it to slog through.

Didn’t seem to better explain the universe they lived in, how people came to be or what would happen next. Every writing teacher says show don’t tell, but this book was just the opposite. I preferred the movie.

Sep 18, Cassandra rated it it was amazing.
