Speculative Book Review: REVIEW: God of War by Matthew Stover and Robert E. Vardeman
Yeah, you got it. Hunters in the Dark. See 1 question about God of War…. No trivia or quizzes yet.
The novel had key differences from the way the movie told the story, and that takes courage to do, knowing that one would be compared to the other eventually. All that said, this was a fun read as long as you understand what it is you’re getting into.
God of War
One thing I enjoyed were the little parts with the olympian gods, which were a nice addition to the whole story but as soon as they were finished I was back to reading words and words about how Kratos killed a cyclops or stovee minotaur or something. It raised my respect for the game developers, though, and I now realize how challenging it would have been to make a story like that look so good in an immersive cut-n-slash adventure gaming environment.
And this an enjoyable novelization of that game. Stver liked the kind of character that Kratos is, since he is a truly tragic hero whose action can be questionable, but you have to take in account his whole life to be able to judge him. In short with any “spoilers” spoilers would be hard to come by mattgew if you’re familiar with the game the book is an ultimately circular experience which follows the experience of the game.
