If you loved the movie, this fills in some blanks

I am a huge planet of the apes fan and it was great to "read" the book without turning pages, and when I wanted to go back over a section, it was great having the 30 second rewind button. The story itself was great, everything I had hoped for. Apes together, strong!

This surprisingly good novel was both moving and beautiful. It had me in tears. Better than the movie, I'm sure

Best of what sci-fi can be

Great written narrative by Greg Cox and a really fantastic performance by Mr. Szarabajka. Better than the movie - and I loved the movie!

Book and movie are exceptional

This is one of the very rare occasions where the book is not better than the movie in that the performances and visuals of the movie are unparalleled. That being said, getting an infinitesimal amount more of the thoughts of the characters coupled with the quality of the story itself makes this a worthwhile read. The voice actor is a little too monotone for me, but good.

A great listen

I loved this book. Having seen the movie countless times I NEVER linked the doll with what happened to the Colonel. It was mind blowing for me. Even if you have seen the movie read it anyway. Will give you details of course that the movie can't.

Well worth a go

It is an exact replication of the film, which is no surprise, however it does give you the insight into the thought process of the characters; plus it was superbly read.
