News Post: Transformers: Dark Of The Moon Novel Details Revealed
The toys come out right before my birthday and the book right after.
Turning 27 is going to ROCK! Stadium rock!
I'm halfway through Transformers: Exodus and looking forward to another good read. Can't wait for this.
Sucks we're not getting a new prequel novel though.
Longer than previous books? Indicative of more plot?
Hope this will be available as an ebook... because Exodus certainly isn't, which is disappointing.
Buy a REAL book, you techno-hipster
I'm interested because PAD wrote this one, but I don't want to read it before seeing the movie. I've never really understood why movie novelizations almost always come out before their respective films.
Wish we were getting a prequel novel again. The last two were decently fun reads.
Probably because people won't bother to read it once the film comes out.
I must not...read....must not...spoil..the..movie!
Weird. I'm the other way around. If I read the book first, I inevitably compare the movie to the one I imagined, and it often diminishes my enjoyment.
So, is there a prequel novel this time around? The two previous movies have had prequel novels before the movie novel was released.
Same really, plus I like to think of the novel as a companion to the movie, adding more depth to the story. Doing it the other way around just feels like a ton of spoilers.
Hopefully I can get it early like the other two novels and go for the hat trick scoop wise
Anyways, it's Peter David, he always put in references to other stuff not mentioned in the film. Fun continuity nods, explanations for stuff not given in the film, etc.
He's at the Far Point convention in Timmonium, MD Sat. 19 and Sun. 20. I hope to hear more on the novel. He's a good writer and I can't wait to read the book...after the movie.
