Superfuous Man

I don't know what I expected from a book based upon the movie. Anyone who's seen the movie has essentially read the book. Although Scott Brick does his normally excellent job of vocalizing the story - the story suffers from the same lack of focus as the movie. The difference? The movie is much shorter. The audiobook does offer some additional detail which is either glossed over or excerpted from the movie, but is hardly worth the additional hours. If you're a Superman fan, you'll listen to the book anyway. If not, the movie will likely fill the void for you.

Listen Before Watching - Great Book

I couldn't want to see Superman Returns... and so I purchased this book.

I found, from my expereince with Star Wars Ep III, that if you read the book based off the movie, it actually makes the movie much better. Versus reading a book and watching a movie based off the book, which ruins it.

Well this book is based off the movie, and it's great! It's just like the movie word for word, except that it gives you extra scences inbeteween the movie scenes that better explain things that the movie eludes too. You get to know what everyone is thinking... then when you go see the movie it's even better cause you know the little things.

Great book, the speaker is great too! Good voice. At first I wasn't sure about his voice, but as it went on it got better and better.
