Description

Point Horror books are simple and easy to read. This book wasn't hugely scary, even though there were a few creepy moments. I had never read anything by Barbara Stein so this was my first taste of any of her books. Although I really enjoyed this one, I felt it was missing something.

Point Horror books are simple and easy to read. Maybe I found this book late in my life because I know my younger self would have squealed in delight with the themes this book presented.

An empty sarcophagus, a dumb jock boyfriend, a girl falling in love with a long-dead Egyptian prince – did Barbara Steiner's The Mummy get ripped off for the 1999 movie The Mummy?

I love movie novelizations. I loved this movie. I usually enjoy Max Allan Collins....so it pains me to say I just didn't enjoy this book. I want 'extras or slight differences' in my novelizations from their movie counterparts. Most are based on the screenplay, not the finished product we see on screen; so I'm not sure I can blame Mr. Collins for how this came across.

Virtually gone was all the humor from every character with minor exceptions; especially Jonathan who was the funny man in the film. I didn't like how Rick kept referring to Evelyn as 'baby'. It sounded too condescending & out of place. I don't mind swearing as a whole; but there was some in this book that wasn't present in the movie. It wasn't needed in the movie & it didn't add to the book. You do get some interesting extra material in the beginning with Imhotep & the rituals. There are also some sections that are great verbal renditions of the movie scenes. I don't want a replay of every scene exactly as it is in the film, but this novelization showed how just slight variances in dialogue changed the whole tone of the narrative.

I loved the movie. After all these years it still holds up as an enjoyable, fun viewing experience. Sadly, the novelization doesn't capture that charm. Despite my disappointment, I may give the sequel a try simply since the characters & their personalities were established, Collins would have a better idea how to write them the second time around.

I think if you've never seen the movie, this would be an entertaining, quick read for sure. If you've seen the film & enjoyed it...you may want to steer clear of this novelization.

I greatly enjoyed "The Mummy" when it was resurrected several years ago. I recall late hours spent watching Zacherlee and Shock Theater, entranced by the antics of a whole slew of monsters, with The Mummy being one of the most memorable. In those days movies still had to have plots and spooky atmospherics to do what we do with special effects and a truckload of gore today.
What made the new "Mummy" fun was not just the updated effects. It also had just the right tongue-in-cheek attitude. Let's face it, mummy movies are high camp. Abbott and Costello figured it out first, but it took decades before Universal Pictures discovered the same secret.
When I discovered that the novelization of "The Mummy Returns" was available I snapped it up. After all, paperbacks are still cheaper than movies and they can be re-read. Set 10 years later than the original movie, Rick O'Connell and Evelyn Carnahan have married and have an 8-year-old son, Alex. They have returned to Egypt seeking the Bracelet of Anubis, an ancient artifact associated with the legendary Scorpion King of Egypt's fabled past. In doing so they trigger an adventure that will have them chasing all over the Egyptian map. For, not far from the O'Connell dig, a group of nefarious cultists are once again resurrecting the mummy of the evil Imhotep, the real star of the first movie.
Imhotep's has plans for the Scorpion King and his minions which require the bracelet. He would also like to even the score with the O'Connells, who foiled his first return. When Alex inadvertently puts on the Bracelet of Anubis, and is kidnapped, he triggers a chase scene that stretches from England to Abyssinia. Before Alex (and life as we know it) is rescued, our doughty heroes will be treated to every kind of adventure and mishap, including reincarnation, dirigible rides, pigmy zombies, and the Scorpion King himself.
"The Mummy Returns" is an excellent novelization of what is a movie that is long on fun and action even if it is a bit short on plot. Max Collins does a good job of taking a thin script and turning it into something enjoyable. Don't expect deep insights or serious Egyptology. This is simply a few hours of enjoyable, light entertainment. Have fun!!

I love to collect movies and their corresponding novelizations. So obviously this was a must have. Collins captures all the suspense and action of the movie as well as providing unseen backstory. Excellent read.

I love this novelization. For me, it is enjoyable having been a long time fan of the films. It allows you to re imagine it as if you were the director making a new film version of the movie.

Great book! This book makes it as if you are the director of the film by giving you the opportunity to envision the Mummy through the big screen of your own imagination. I love this!!
