Stargate

PDF EBook by Dean Devlin

EBook Description

The thing about books based on screenplays is that, just like screenplays based on books, they're just never quite as good. Stargate PDF EBookSad but true.I'd like to be able to say that the book is always better than the movie, because I'm a book snob and believe in the inherent supremacy of literature, but because I am a book snob, I'm forced to admit that this isn't always the case.In fact, with book adaptations of screenplays, the case seems to be that these are works of middling to no effort intended solely to cash in on the popularity surrounding a movie or television series.

That being said, StarGate is actually decent for what it is.No one could ever accuse it of being a work of great literature, but it is entertaining, sometimes humorous, and on the whole not half as craptastic as other adaptations I've encountered.I mean, any book that refers to the "brick- PDFshitting terror" of the Abydonians and has Daniel Jackson being sexually molested can't be all bad, right?Right.And though it's been far too long since I've seen the movie for me the be sure how closely the book follows the script, it seems like the writers at least made an effort to delve a little deeper than just what was shown on-screen.

I only had two major problems with this book.One, it was obviously done in a hurry and was full of pretty basic typos that could've easily been caught and corrected if someone (or someone actually competent) had been hired to proofread the damn thing.And two, the constantly switching perspectives is really annoying.I know it's not technically incorrect, it's just a pet peeve of mine; download; I hate third person omniscient with a passion.No, really.Hate.Passion.Like, burning.But anyway, if you can overlook those things, and you're a sci-fi fan, it might not be a waste of a rainy Sunday afternoon to give this book a quick read.
