Lovelace King Kong is one of the most recognizable names and images in America He s inspired movies, novels, comic books andI first became aware of him through a cartoon when I was four years old but rather than be scary that Kong was taking care of a young boy Since then I seem to run into him everywhere and so it was with a great deal of interest that I decided to read this novelization of the original movie Kong quite understandably overshadows the whole book even though he doesn t make his first appearance until halfway through the novel The tension builds well as Denham leads his cast out into the middle of the ocean in search of something new and exotic that he can film He finds an isolated island he s heard rumors of There a great wall protects the natives from some Without doubt, this is one of the finest movie novelizations ever written In a genre of literature that is so often a cash grab in modern times, 1932 s King Kong by mystery writer Delos W Lovelace is a cut above the rest.

some uncomfortable racism Okay, King Kong should be pretty well spoilerized by now Its ending is one of the most iconic scenes in cinema I just saw it re enacted in the Cars music video my daughter was watching If you re reading this, and you haven t seen Kong go see the 1933 Kong The only excuse to read the novel first is for the people back in 1932.
So Kong Big ape on an island fights dinosaurs, 8th Wonder of the World, the Airplanes got em, Beauty killed the Beast, roll credits Or, as Slate so elegantly saidGenerally, unlike Campbell s Creature From The Black Lagoon adaptation, the novel s the same except for a single big difference.
People Kong is black.
Yeah, I know, you can probably guess that from endless gorilla documen No soy muy fan tico de las novelizaciones, aunque esta, est bastante bien, es pr cticamente la pel cula de 1933 plasmada en el libro Es una lectura bastante gil, sin vueltas ni detalles pesados De hecho peca un poco en este sentido, ya que me hubiese gustado que profundice un poco m s en algunas cosas y que se tome ciertas libertades para hacer la historia un poco mas completa A n as , es bastante entretenido y es una novelita que puede leerse solo en un par de d as Le bajo dos estrellas, la primera es porque si bien, es de f cil lectura, no termina de gustarme del todo la mano del autor, el periodista Delos Lovelace, y porque me hubiese gustado que profundice mas en otros aspectos, como la construcci n Perhaps among the imaginary giant characters I amfamiliar with, King Kong stands out among them I can see his replicas in toy stores And for sure you can even come across him in Universal Studios I can play him on video games I can read him in comics I can see him making fun of children as a mascot at birthday parties He could scare the living day lights out of me in a haunted house at an amusement park or even on Halloween day Above all, he could make an antagonistic cameo appearance in fantasy dramas or movies He can be famous in any situations Thanks to its movie adaptation, he is now immortal For sure, he will be borne upon in the mind of the next generation since it is said to have another movie remake I have seen its 2005 movie remake and I enjoyed it a bunch Comparatively, having watched its movie adaptation ga Excellent Although it s a novelization, this book is an accomplishment unto itself If read alongside Arthur Conan Doyle s The Lost World and Edgar Rice Burroughs s The Land That Time Forgot, King Kong shoulders up with those classics In terms of the cohesive, crisp storyline, and vivid descriptions, King Kong is better than The Land Time Forgot In terms of sharply drawn characters like Denham and Kong himself, King Kong competes with The Lost World s marvelous Professor Challenger Where King Kong surpasses them both is imbuing the monster with a mysterious mix of menace and majesty as opposed to Doyle and Burroughs s and later Crichton s parade of nameless, faceless dinosaurs.
Delos Lovelace has a charming way with words I was floored to read that he had a journalism background, because I associate newspaper writers with effective but colorless prose Lovelace uses a I was pleasantly surprised that I really enjoyed this novelization of King Kong, the classic movie from 1933 Of course, unless you were born under a rock, this is the story of how Carl Denhem, a movie producer in the 30s, seeks out the legend of Kong based on a map and story he received from a Norwegian sailor He travels on a steamer to Skull Island along with his mate, Jack Driscoll, and Ann Darrow, the young woman he finds on the streets of New York who he wants to play the lead in the story of the adventure And when they do get to Skull Island, Ann is captured by the colossal prehistoric gorilla King Kong And of course, Kong is subsequently subdued and brought to New York as the Eighth Wonder of the World where in the end Beauty killed the

The most awesome cover of the many editions of King Kong I picked up this paperback earlier in the year and probably have the finest quality edition in the world.
And I paid less than 4 for it Art by the great Frank Frazetta and a nice version of the story of Kong.
Here s a cool variation of the cover And another And a wonderful tribute by Frank Cho And oneby Frank Cho And one last one by an unknown artist for the Bonga comic book I guess Frank Frazetta must have been in love with Ann Darrow , , , , , , 1991 , , , ,1933 , , , , , , ,
