Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

PDF EBook by Les Martin

EBook Description

I am mostly delusional but not completely delusional. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom PDF EBook I knew this book was going to be crap when I picked it up at that shack- PDFlike used book shop a couple of years ago, but my boy and I love Indy, and I thought it would be a fun book for him to read as his reading skills increased. I stand by that even after reading it; download; it's a decent movie-tie-in for a seven year old boy.

There're lots of sun and time faded photos from the Temple of Doom (and who doesn't love movie stills?), and hackosaurus Les Martin doesn't offer anything fancy. It's all sort of "this happened, then this happened, and now this is happening but that just happened, and then this happened and now it's over." Perfect for a seven year old boy.

And there is even a cool scene that I've never heard any reference to in any other version of Temple of Doom, wherein Indy is already under the Black Sleep of Kali, and he comes back to Pankot Palace to put Willie to sleep, reassure Captain Blumbart (of Her Majesty's Cavalry) that everything is fine, and spend a little play time with Chatter Lal and the Maharajah. It was probably a scene that Spielberg trimmed from the screenplay (a wise decision), but it was a lot of fun to read here, and it actually tightened things up a little plotwise.

Regardless, this book is pretty sucky. Martin removes all references to "Fortune and Glory" as an Indy motivator — which is one of my favourite parts of Temple of Doom — and then he removes the "nocturnal activities" seduction sequence between Willie and Indy. Okay ... fair enough ... this book is for children, so if you have to take out the double entendres, be my guest, but couldn't you also remove, say, the whole Mola Ram ripping a heart out of a guy's chest thing? God forbid a child hears that Willie and Indy might want to sleep together, but by all means let that same child bask in the horror of beating hearts being held aloft. The fucking hypocrisy is what gets me.

Oh well, this was fun for me regardless. A nice thing to do while my computer boots up every morning. It's Milos' book now, and if he misses the full fun of Willie and Indy flirting, he can watch it as soon as he's finished reading.

Cause, after all, who doesn't love watching Kate Capshaw booby snatching the pillar statue? Like this book? Read online this: The Best Thing That Never Happened To Me, Young Indiana Jones and the Plantation Treasure (Young Indiana Jones, Book 1).
