    I picked up this book after recalling the 1982 83 film inolving Jim Henson and Frank Oz The book is a novelization of this film and therefore, as novelizations go, ran the risk of being lame Although I agree with other reviewers, that the books scientific and technical explanations of the visual aspects of the story fall short of the wonder of their portrayal on the big screen, I was impressed by A.C.H Smith s word choices and his addition of some political drama that I don t recall being in I picked up this book after recalling the 1982 83 film inolving Jim Henson and Frank Oz The book is a novelization of this film and therefore, as novelizations go, ran the risk of being lame Although I agree with other reviewers, that the books scientific and technical explanations of the visual aspects of the story fall short of the wonder of their portrayal on the big screen, I was impressed by A.C.H Smith s word choices and his addition of some political drama that I don t re...

    I liked this movie a lot as a kid, even though I had no idea what the hell was going on All of its themes, ideas, and parts of its story went right over my kiddie head The novelization looks a tad too dense for me to really want to chop my way through while I have bronchitis and laryngitis, so I ll...
