When Rob MacGregor enrolled at the University of Minnesota in the late 1960s, he planned to study . I was also curious to see how Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in book form would deal with the Nazi angle.

He never gave up his interest in ancient civilizations, and between jobs and on vacations he explored archaeological sites in Mexico, Central and South America, Europe, and North Africa. At the end of the movie, when Else loses her life while trying to clutch the Holy Grail, Indy says,"Else didn't really believe in the Grail.

The only thing he hadn’t gotten are good writers to put his chronicles to paper and do justice to his undertakings. The barely passable bits are mostly the action parts: the Venice boat chase, the battle with and on the tank, etc.

The Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade novel is Rob MacGregor's adaptation of the Last Crusade film, published in June 1989 by Ballantine Books. The book, along with the novelizations of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, was republished in 2008 by Del Rey. The fearless archaeologist Indiana Jones returns in a spectacular new adventure! The time is the 1930s.

Rob MacGregor is an American author. After adapting Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade as a novel, he went on to write the first six entries in Bantam's series of original Indy stories. He was set to return to the franchise with a new novel based on the Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings video game before the book was cancelled.

Last Crusade returns a bit to the first one portraying Indy as a professor. Just as the first of the series Nazi was the archenemy of the Jones' party and the treasure they are after is again biblical. Logic and illogic coexist. Indiana Jones came from the comic hero long long time back. If you love the movie, I am sure you will enjoy the book too including some of the parts movie left out. It is really like playing PC roll playing game while I am reading this book. Recommended for Indiana Jones series fans.

This book is just like the movie with some extra back story to the characters. A very fast read, fun, and exciting.

Came in good condition, good read.

I thought Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark was quite faithful to the movie script all along. I thought I recognized a lot of lines in the book as coming from the movie. In a scene near the end of the film several young Nazis beg off from participating in the project because,as they say,they are "uncomfortable with the thought of this Jewish ritual." I was glad the book included that scene, lest we forget. But I didn't think either the movie or the book explained Hitler's own interest in "this Jewish ritual" well enough. Was Hitler (one imagines) hoping to turn the Ten Commandments on their heads to thus endorse Naziism? This would have taken some additional and very ambitious "reeducation" of German youth. Or did Hitler simply want to capture Judaism's famous Tablets of the Law as a symbol of the "Synagogue Defeated"--a fairly common theme of cathedral art in Europe, not unlike the Temple Menorah which may still lie buried in the bed of the Tiber River.
I was also curious to see how Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in book form would deal with the Nazi angle. At the end of the movie, when Else loses her life while trying to clutch the Holy Grail, Indy says,"Else didn't really believe in the Grail." I didn't find that line in the book, but the author's description of Elsa "cuddling the Grail like a child with a stuffed animal" gets the point across well, too.
When I was a high school sophomore, our English teacher, a Mr. Donald Oleson, had our class read "On the Waterfront," by Bud Schulberg. Mr. Oleson touted this as a great thing-- that the producer of a film that already had been a box office success, should find himself dissatisfied with the film artistically, and take the trouble to write a book on the same subject that would bring out the "message" of the movie better. Since that time, during the late '60s, I think there has been a trend to follow movies with hopefully better books. I applaud that, too, as art for art's sake. David Bittner

I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and, being the type who would just as soon read as watch a movie, looked for this book. Knowing Ryder Windham to be a good author from the Star Wars books he has written, I expected a very good, if not great, book.

I was not disappointed. This is excellent. Appropriate for just about all ages, this book captures the never-ending action of the film while still presenting a clear enough portrayal for anyone to understand. Windham notices little details (which would probably have been overlooked by most watchers) that contribute significantly towards this great novelization. The most noticeable feature of the book is its clarity. I must continue to emphasize how clear and straightforward it is.

In the middle of the book are some pictures from the movie, which younger readers might find adds a lot to it. (I wouldn't say they add too much, but it certainly will be appreciated by many readers.) The consistency with the movie is astounding, as well. Several changes were made to the dialogue (such as the removal of inappropriate language), but otherwise is extremely accurate.

The character portrayal of most of the people in the book is very well done. The only character I would say was not very well portrayed would be Indiana Jones himself--I believe that Ryder Windham assumed that the reader would already understand his personality. (I would agree with him.) Indiana's father, Dr. Henry Jones, was exceptionally well done.

In short, here is my summary:
Pros: *Clarity,* character portrayal, writing style, accuracy, capture of a scene's mood, details, and clarity once again.
Cons: Lack of the dramatic music from the film (which can be remedied by getting the soundtrack, like I did), a little too short (I prefer long books--but this seems to be a trade-in to keep the book action-packed), and somewhat bland at times. Not any significant cons.

I would this book 4 1/2 stars only because I like to save 5 stars for the absolutely perfect book. But as far as a novelization goes, I could not ask for a better one. Absolutely wonderful. If you seek a novelization for a great movie, there is none better suited to the job than
Ryder Windham.

I bought this tape in the middle of rediscovering the Young Indy Chronicles and was keen to hear the back story of the Cross of Coronado and the men stealing it. The book implies Donovan was the man trying to steal the cross. There were many other scenes specific to the book I was keen to hear but was disappointed to find the tape very much abridged with the entire opening story removed. The tape start with Indy teaching a class.
It was still enjoyable with good quality recording which transfers well to digital.
The narration was overplayed and sold as impressive but was in my opinion dry and monotone with little character.
Still worth hearing but possibly not worth the antique price it sells for.
