Comments about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull:

Indiana Jones's fourth adventure comes to life in James Rollins' novel. The dialogue and descriptions are a bit clunky, with the author admitting that due to secrecy provisions, he was unable to request proof-readers before publication. Nevertheless the reader is presented with a page-turner and high adventure. Some of the henchman are understandably bland in description, so that Rollins' gets straight on with the action. There are some nice nods to moments in the film, though he doesn't really fully capture Cate Blanchett's Eastern European villain vixen. I have read the other novelisations of the preceding three movies and this is a near word-perfect retelling of the screenplay.
