    Wow. Can't believe I succeeded in reading every single page of this collection of stories.Basically George Lucas and Steven Spielberg created an epic adventure series that continues to this day to warm the hearts of those of an adventurous spirit.Campbell Black starts with his adaptation of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I have to say there is a very descriptive style, but any adventure fan knows that it doesn't come close without watching it. The writer doesn't deliver much and this is due to Spielberg's great storytelling, John Williams fantastic score as well as the great acting from the cast. I do like things here and there, but I really would have loved reading about the details as to why Indy and Belloq were at each others throats. I did get slightly more detailed look into Marion and Indy's relationship. Knowing that Indy did what he did to her at an unknown age is not the most treasured thing of Indy knowing that he took advantage of a teen-aged girl.The rest of the details skim fast. Since this was probably the shooting script without the quirks that made the movie great. Indy's encounter with a swordsman is brief and I don't mean as brief as a gunshot, I'm saying the gunshot never happened for the shooting script intended for Indy and the swordsman to fight, only because of a bad case of desert diarrhea, it didn't.Other things are interesting, the encounter with Marion and Belloq is more steamy in that hatred and attraction brings them together, well almost anyway. The final conclusion to the story is changed up a litte as we only understand Belloq's agony at opening the Ark. Still a modestly told story.James Khan after having succeeded in telling Return of the Jedi adaptation has a go with The Temple of Doom. I must say I'm not much of a fan of this movie, but as a book it works so much better. I like some of the detail and feelings of the characters of Willie and Shorty. Willie is selfish but a girl with a stubborn streak, Shorty is young and naive but very street smart. The premise of the story is preserved from the movie with anything much to add on.But I do like how near the end they mention the blood of Kali which is actually done really good in the book. So well written and kind of scary as it reminded me of another scary movie set in India. A very decent adaptation.Rob McGregor finishes the trilogy's end with The Last Crusade remarkably well. Once again there isn't too much that's different from the final product but if anything this is much better told. Practically word for word with some minor changes in the end. But of course without the great cast to flesh it out. Nice bit in the symbolism of certain animals that Henry Jones addressed in his Grail Diary. Nice detail on the Knight of the First Crusade. I even like a scene which Indy and Henry see a female director attempting to film the Nazi hierarchy, an obvious reference to Leni Riefenstahl. Plenty of good things here and there and without a doubt makes one feel sad that it all comes to an end. But then again this is no longer a triology, but that is another story for another time.Raiders of the Lost Ark: B-Temple of Doom: B+Last Crusade: A-Collection: B+

    Ne I predatori dell’Arca Perduta l’esercito statunitense richiede l’aiuto di Indiana Jones, professore universitario di archeologia, per arrivare prima dei nazisti a quella che potrebbe essere la scoperta archeologica più importante della sua vita: l’Arca dell’Alleanza. Con l’aiuto della figlia del suo mentore, massimo conoscitore dell’Arca, Indiana attraverserà mezzo mondo fino ad arrivare agli scavi di Tanis; ma l’esercito nazista, guidato dal nemico di sempre di Indiana, l’archeologo Belloq, non ha intenzione di arrendersi tanto facilmente..Ne Il tempio maledetto Indiana Jones, in fuga da un malvivente di Shangai, si ritrova insieme alla cantante Willie e al piccolo amico Shorty ad attraversare la giungla indiana per tornare alla civiltà; lungo il tragitto arrivano in un villaggio che sta lentamente morendo. Gli abitanti sono disperati, attribuiscono le loro disgrazie al furto di una pietra magica e chiedono l’aiuto di Indiana; l’archeologo, dopo qualche esitazione, decide di far luce su quanto stia accadendo e si reca con i suoi compagni di viaggio al palazzo di un potente maharajah, dove scopriranno una verità terribile..Ne L’ultima crociata Indiana Jones, su richiesta di un importante finanziatore del museo dell’amico Brody, si reca a Venezia alla ricerca del padre scomparso; Henry Jones, grande esperto del Graal, era sulle tracce dell’antica reliquia ma di lui non si hanno più notizie da diverso tempo. Deciso a ritrovare il padre, Indiana con l’aiuto dell’affascinante studiosa austriaca Elsa si metterà sulle tracce della preziosa coppa, ma anche altri la stanno cercando; i nazisti riescono sempre ad entrare in possesso delle informazioni di Indy, ma nessuno sa come superare le prove per accedere alla stanza dove è custodito il Graal. Nessuno, tranne Indiana Jones..Da grande amante di questa saga non ho potuto fare a meno di leggere i libri tratti dai film, ed è stata una lettura fantastica. Pur sapendo esattamente come si sarebbero conclusi i racconti, le penne dei tre autori mi hanno fatto rivivere le emozioni dei film e forse anche qualcosa in più; si sa, leggere rende tutto migliore :)Sono storie avvincenti, entusiasmanti, ti prendono e ti incollano alle pagine; le battute e il sarcasmo di Indy, la sua abilità e il suo spirito ribelle lo rendono un personaggio fantastico.Assolutamente consigliato!!!!!! :)

    I really like having all three of the original Indiana Jones film novelizations in one volume. That way I don't have to buy them separately, even though I totally am. This includes Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, and Last Crusade. Out of the three of them Temple of Doom is my favorite film novelization even though Raiders of the Lost Ark is my favorite Indy film. Collectors and Indy fans alike will enjoy having this book in their collection.

    If you're a fan of the movies you'll love these stories, as they are written based on the shooting script and so include scenes that were never filmed, but hinted at in the movie. Raiders is the biggest revelation as large parts of the ending are radically different from the ending of the movie. Not worse, just different.

    Excellent. Each story is based off of the screenplay of its respective movie, so the story isn;t exactly the same as the movie. For Raiders, it's nearly unbearably different. For Temple and Crusade, it's absolutely perfect.

    I really enjoyed reading the novels of the first three films; they captured the films completely. There were a few extra scenes as there always is in adaptions which added a lot more depth and insight into the characters.

    This book covered the first three movies. Great writing, and as always... the books were better than the movies!
