Kevin J. Keeping with the main theme of General Zod and 3 henchmen, The Last Days of Krypton never fails to please the reader. The story of Jor-El and Lara is quite endearing (as without them we would have no Kal-El!) as is the impending breakup of the planet, Jor-El's interactions with his brother and the Council/Zod.

Keeping with the main theme of General Zod and 3 henchmen, The Last Days of Krypton never fails to please the reader.

Let me start by saying I generally love Kevin J. Anderson's books. His Saga of the Seven Suns ranks up as one of my all time favorite series.

That being said, this was just disappointing. Given that anyone reading the novel likely knows the Superman origin story, it makes sense that it is somewhat predictable. However, the nuances he usually brings to his characters just isn't there.

*spoilers*
The attempts to instill "suspense" with all of the possible scenarios for what will doom Krypton, got tedious. Is it the planetary instability? An alien invasion? No it's the doomsday weapons Zod has unearthed, no it's the comet, no it's a supernova, no it's an idiotic politician. The best parts of the book were the attempts at character development in the relationship between Lara and Jor-El. That at least provided some insight and a new take on a tale that has been retold many times.

While I'll never fault an author for taking a payday, I'd rather Kevin stay with universes he is allowed more free reign in to develop them the way he sees fit. The shackles of the Superman origin story were readily apparent here and even a writer if his caliber couldn't overcome them.

Creating a consistent backstory for the greatest superhero of the DC universe is an extremely difficult task, and it has been attempted many times by many many different authors. All of my life, I was interested in Krypton and what life was like prior to its destruction. Comics have done a fair job explaining the Kryptonian society, but that medium was never consistent. And I don't expect <b>everything</b> to be consistent from start to finish, but a little consistency would help.

Along comes Kevin J Anderson, and does he ever do a good job with this tall order. Keeping with the main theme of General Zod and 3 henchmen, The Last Days of Krypton never fails to please the reader. The story of Jor-El and Lara is quite endearing (as without them we would have no Kal-El!) as is the impending breakup of the planet, Jor-El's interactions with his brother and the Council/Zod. This story could use a good movie or TV show.

Yes, I have seen Krypton. Yes, I like the show; however, 200 years back in the past is a bit too much, I think. This novel is what needs to be broadcast, IMO.

I gave four stars to the last days of krypton because though i really enjoyed the history of superman origins I was confused on some parts for like one I always thought jor-el and zor-zor-el had a intense dislike for each other but maybe I was wrong and how did zor-el and alura not have kara-el before the planet blew up I thought they had her before they even sent kal-el into space but I was wrong and I didnt understand how stupid the people were to not listen to the one man who saved them countless of times seems so foolish over all i really love this backdrop into superman origins I recommend to all fans out there like me and newcomers if you pass this over you'll regret it

Being a long time fan of Superman and comics in general I had never read any prose novels of such characters. This novel is best read once you have at least a decent recollection of Superman's history. It's better if you read some of the comics first, mostly some origin stories, before jumping in this this 412 page novel.

Once set this novel becomes ever engrossing. It fills in gaps and cavities in the Superman story so well it seemed as if the comics were based on the book itself instead of vice versa. Without spoiling, the book gives a a glorious detail in Krypton's days before its demise and how Zod rose to power and was eventually trapped in the Phantom Zone, why such an advanced civilization (all with potential powers just like superman) was not able to escape, and even a shocking surprise of a future Justice League member who makes an indirect cameo.

The book is so well written that you feel a part of you is on Krypton, you feel you are a part of the characters that even without pictures of any sort the characters are so full of life.

Definitely pick up this book if you can.

I just finished the book and I have to say that I was pleased with the creativity and respect the author gave to the 75 years of Superman mythology when dealing with Krypton.

While I have not read every single story printed in the last 75 years about Krypton I had read a large number of them and I could recognize various aspects of them in this book. The author pulls them together very nicely.

Why I didn't give 5 stars is mainly because of minor things.....

#1. This shouldn't be a one book story. The author crammed everything in the span of a year or so. It should have been a 3 book story. One book going into more detail on Yar-El in the first book and establish a back story for Jor-EL and Zor-El. Second book establishing Jor-El and Zod's rise to greatness. Third book dealing with the political and social rebuilding after Zod's war and the back lash focused on Jor-El culminating in his plan to send his son to earth.

#2. Simple disagreement on which stories he decided to cement into his own telling of it. His version of Brainiac for instance. I would have preferred the Dini version of Brainiac. There are a number of other bits I won't go into them.

Overall I would recommend this book to any Superman fan with an open mind.
