    It follows the movie plot very closely Since I read this as research, it didn t matter to me that I knew what was going to happen I did learn some things from the book that you don t learn in the movie, most of them concerning names How Pepper got her nickname, Jarvis is an acronym, You and Dummy are the robots actual names This would likely be a 5 star book if I hadn t seen the movie first.

    I adore the first Iron Man film, it s one of my favourite Marvel films And this book really allowed you into people s heads to see the motives behind the characters actions.It also follows the version of the story that the deleted scenes for the movie shows I think the story the film followed worked best for it, but they make sense having read the book as you really need to understand what s going through Tony s mind.


  9. emily_oriley emily_oriley says:

    Truth be told, I didn t finish it Just couldn t stand this version of Tony Stark and once I realized the cave scene takes upthan half the book, I started to become concerned that the rest of the story was going to be poorly rushed The tipping point was when Stark denounced Rhodey as his friend believing him to only be interested in Stark as an asset That bugged me too much so I had to stop reading.

    to be honest, i ve read this book because some excerpts on tumblr led me to believe this waspepperony centered than it was though it depicts ahuman aspect of Pepper s, it also cuts all her sassy responses, tough hide and just how badass she is in the movie, so i guess that s why i didn t like the novelization as much Tony is the same though and Obadiah as always is a lying scum also, Coulson is somehow less
