    This prequel is actually quite a bit better than the novelization that follows it I d be inclined toward a better rating if they weren t using the G.I Joe name in conjunction with it, though Pretty much all that h...

    This is a fairly simple tie in novel for the upcoming major motion picture I like the characters and the general story line but found the writing style to be bland and rudimentary I would only recommend this novel if you are a huge Joe fan such as myself or want to h...

    Very weak plot with one dimensional characters The book did have some action scenes, but you didn t really care if any of the characters got killed or not.
