These components may be configured together in many combinations. Despite the mixed reviews, I thought Kevin J. So who's to blame? Not only was the diction puerile and stupid, the plotting ludicrous, a Ugh Krypton is like Rome was in its waning days of the Empire.
He was willing to do what it took to protect them without compromising his morals. Truly worthy of the "S". I think the book should have been about him. Overall, I liked some of the touches to previous works: Braniac, J'onn J'onzz, "kneel before Zod", "truth and justice", the fortress of solitude, the crystals, and some others. It was not heavy, but they came at good times in the narrative. This book really could have been a larger work and many of the characters could have been fleshed out.
It seemed like the timeline of events happened awful fast. Also, the idea that Krypton faced global planetary threats in nine months seemed to be a bit much. I would only recommend this book to just below hardcore Superman fans. It offers nothing new, but it came close to being something epic and great.
It's just lost potential. View 1 comment.
Jan 09, James Mourgos rated it really liked it Shelves: Despite the mixed reviews, I thought Kevin J. Anderson did a good job portraying life on Krypton.
I have often wondered, if Krypton were so much more advanced than Earth, why didn't they explore new worlds? Why when the planet exploded, there were no Kryptonians around except those that barely escaped? Anderson answers these and more in a thick book about the rise and fall of Krypton. Krypton is like Rome was in its waning days of the Empire.
Fat from its long, proud history, there is little cre Despite the mixed reviews, I thought Kevin J. Fat from its long, proud history, there is little creativity amongst the people.
There are a few who stand out but their potential is squashed. The civilization on Krypton is old, decadent and very conservative. Zod, who wants Jor-El's technology for himself, is playing like he is following Council's orders to suppress all "dangerous" tech.
The Council represents Krypton's ruling class and they're not about to repeat history and let their planet again go to war or fight the alien threat that may come from space, or from their own backyard. Keep the status quo very status'd and very 'quo'd. It's a story about taking chances, about doing what you think is right and about fighting back against suppression.
It's also about learning and taking advantage of what you could know Jor-El's adventure with an alien who lands on Krypton and tells him marvels is such an event. Overall, I was happy with the book. A bit over-long in going over Zod's megalomanic plans. The Braniac scene where Kandor gets sucked out of the planet and what's left is a black scar on the surface and how Zod takes advantage is great. You just want to strangle the old Council for being so backward and stupid. And you want to kick people for letting Zod take control.
Clearly the book takes a lot of its material of crystal technology from the original Superman film -- there are many allusions to it throughout the novel. Recommended for the Superman fan.

Possibly the most disappointing book I have read this year It disappoints on so many levels and in so many ways. For starters, with over sixty books to his credit, I was expecting something better; granted with half of those books based on the work of others George Lucas, Frank Herbert, A, E, Vogt, and others so perhaps it is not unexpected that this book disappoints. The result is a novels that contains all the names of people, places, and events but without really adding anything new, fresh or interesting.
The love that Jor-el and Lara felt for each other is not felt. Zod is a cardboard villain. This story could easily have been set in almost any other universe. An exciting and considering how often the story has been told and re-told surprisingly fresh insight into the back-story of one of the most iconic fictional figures of the last century.
Anderson has united elements of many of the various back-stories behind Krypton, but in doing so has put a wholly new spin on the destruction of Krypton. The story is elegantly put together, The characters are well developed, and yet still very comprehensible in their motivations and actions. The setting is as An exciting and considering how often the story has been told and re-told surprisingly fresh insight into the back-story of one of the most iconic fictional figures of the last century.
The setting is as epic as we might expect from a 'long-dead, extremely powerful civilisation' and in spite of the fact that we all know the ending, Anderson manages to create a surprising amount of suspense.
All in all this has something for everyone, from the die-hard Superman comics fans, to those who only know him from the movie.
For those who have yet to enter the world of Superman, however, I recommend looking elsewhere first and then coming back to this book. While prior knowledge is not strictly necessary in order to enjoy The Last Days of Krypton; without it, you'll miss a lot of little references to things to come and so won't get nearly as much out of it as you could.
May 02, Anja Braun rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Superman fans. I didn't want to put this book down and it was with great reluctance when I had too!! If you ever wanted to know more about Kal-El's birthplace then this is the book for you. How did Jor-El meet Lara? Who created the Phantom Zone? The deviousness of Zod and how Nam-Ek and Aethyr became his companions.
The total stupidity of the Kryptonian council and why they are to blame for the destruction of Krypton. The story of Kandor and why Brainic did what he did. Jor-El taking back Kryptonopolis from Zo I didn't want to put this book down and it was with great reluctance when I had too!!
Jor-El taking back Kryptonopolis from Zod. The punishment of Zod, Aethyr, and Nam-Ek. This is the best book I have read in a long time. So if you are a Superman fan I think you will like this book! I know I did!! Nov 17, Carolyn rated it it was ok Shelves: I haven't actually read any of the Superman comics, so I have no beef with this book's details and it seems to mesh well with what I remember from all the films and tv series. So, it had some interesting information and served as a pretty good summary of the backgrounds of Zod, Jor-El, etc.
Having said that, though, I agree that this book seems to have been written for the average 8th grader. Unfortunately, more of what I have come to expect from Kevin Anderson novels. Extremely light character I haven't actually read any of the Superman comics, so I have no beef with this book's details and it seems to mesh well with what I remember from all the films and tv series.
Extremely light character development, plot lines that jump and skip from one major event and crisis to another, very little description of anything other than the barest gloss-over to get it out there.
Overall, very little depth to any of it. I read it in about 5 hours over the course of two days. Pretty disappointing - this was a rich storyline that could have been written well over several books, instead it felt like a summary of "the book that could have been.
Nov 11, Bybees rated it did not like it. I haven't read science fiction in years, but this book caught my eye in the library. It's about Superman's home planet, in case you ever wanted to know where he came from.
I did, and I had such high hopes, but this book was a thorough letdown. The dialogue was unrealistic, the characters were shallow, the storyline was weak and unbelievable. It seemed to have been written for 8th graders.
If you're a Superman fan, I recommend you simply leave his homeplanet's fate to your own imagination. What an incredible book! Seriously, stop what are you doing right now and start reading it. I love superman and read about his origin planet was wonderful. Kevin J. Anderson is a an amazing author, I'm very surprised. I don't have words to describle how perfect it was.

Eu adorei como o Zod foi executado aqui. Jan 12, Abhinav rated it really liked it Shelves: You can find the full review over at The Founding Fields: Shadowhawk reviews the audiobook edition of Kevin J. Or a comics tie-in for that matter. My memory is rather hazy on that point. The Animated Series cartoon. And it did. There are several characters in The Last Days of Krypton: Theirs is a story that takes place over several months, as Krypton undergoes great upheavals in its social and cultural structures, upheavals that rock it to its core.
Whether it is apocalyptic doom from the sun Rao going supernova, or tectonic instabilities, or alien raids, or the grim stupidity of its leaders, Krypton is doomed and the story that Anderson writes is full of emotion and tragedy, one after another. The secluded planet goes through one staggering change after another. The high point of the story is not the science, or the grandeur of the doomed planet, or Kryptonian culture, or the rise of General Zod or anything else.
It is a simple concept: The relationships are what ultimately drive the entire story, because a lot rests upon how Jor-El, Zor-El and Laura are manipulated by Zod, how all of Krypton itself is manipulated by him.
It goes without saying that these are the characters I enjoyed. Jul 11, Neil rated it it was ok Shelves: This was an "okay" book; it was mildly entertaining. I would say somewhere between 2.
After it was over, it was a "meh" and I moved on to my next book. It was slow reading; it felt longer than it was. It almost felt like it could have been broken down into two books, but that would definitely have been a minimum of one book too many.
The character development was all right; as the readers obviously know what was going to happen [in the end] it was pretty anticlimactic. I suppose This was an "okay" book; it was mildly entertaining. I suppose the author did a decent job. It was kind of like trying to watch the prequel Star Wars movies about Anakin's fall from grace.
There was no way any portrayal could have pleased everybody, and most people would no doubt be disappointed with the telling now matter how it was portrayed.
The author had a tough job to sell in telling the story of Krypton before its destruction and Kal-El's escape. I do give him kudos for tackling it and attempting it. I am sure in my case it stems from reading numerous stories about Krypton's past in the comics as well as watching the Christopher Reeve Superman movies that interfered with my enjoyment of this novelization about what happened in the year or two before Krypton was destroyed.
The author definitely had a difficult task ahead of him. The "best line" in the book for me was on page when Zod said, "Solar disturbances, tectonic upheaval, massive waves, and a threatening comet? The continual disasters, one after the other, got to be somewhat ludicrous [not saying it could not happen; it just made me start laughing at "what happened next!
I felt the character development was probably the weakest part of the book. Zod was just. Jor-El and Zor-El left a bit to be desired as genius-scientists who happened to be brothers. The Kryptonian government in the form of the respective "Councils" was inept beyond belief; they merely seemed to be caricatures to "highlight" how smart and benevolent and wise Jor-El was and how incompetent the rulers of Krypton were, especially in light of the numerous disasters that were overtaking the planet.
There were some [mildly] interesting parts in the narrative view spoiler [such as how the instability of the Kryptonian sun Rao caused changes in the planetary orbits as well as the orbit of the comet Loth-Ur's Hammer such that Loth-Ur's orbit around the sun would not cause the comet to collide directly with Krypton, or Zod's interactions with Brainiac after Kandor was taken by Brainiac hide spoiler ].
I felt like the readers were supposed to "just accept" that portions of the underlying strata were transforming into "new rock formations" without any kind of validation or scientific reasons being given. Also, I was confused about the oncoming comet. It was going to strike Krypton in three to four months after Jor-El somehow noticed its orbit had been altered.
I thought the idea of its orbit being altered was pretty cool; I did not quite understand how Jor-El was able to notice such a thing visually without the use of any instruments, especially as the comet was still four months away from striking Krypton.
Then, when Zod attempted to launch one of the nova javelin missiles, all fifteen of the missiles were launched an immediately struck the comet. The comet still should have been a month away at this point, yet everybody was able to watch the missiles strike the comet and destroy it. It seemed pretty pointless to have had the comet in the story, as it only served to function as target practice for the missiles; it was pretty clear that the missiles would have to be used to destroy the comet to save Krypton [prior to Krypton exploding].
I thought the concept that the Phantom Zone would expand within the planet's core and absorb the entire core was a bit much, a bit too far out there.
I get it, that the "entrance" to the Phantom Zone is a singularity that feeds off of energy; I also get it that dropping the singularity into the planet's core would give it a tremendous source of energy upon which it could feed and grow.
I guess that made [makes] sense. The gravity of the planet should have disappeared as the molten core was absorbed into the Phantom Zone; the lack of gravity should have meant the loss of the atmosphere and the ability of the biosphere to survive. It always struck me as "funny" that Superman was the "last Kryptonian" when there was a whole, entire city of shrunken Kryptonians that he would rescue from Brainiac as well as some other Kryptonians who would appear over time in the comics.
I also found myself wondering about his cousin, Kara-El. The book never mentions that Zor-El and his wife and a daughter or that she escaped the destruction of Krypton.
At the same time, the book leaves open the possibility that Argo City survived the destruction [for a limited period of time] due to Zor-El's defensive shields that were in place around the city and due to the amount of supplies kept in the city in addition to Alura's greenhouses and skills with Kryptonian flora. The comment is that "the chunk of land holding Argo City rose above sea level, broken free as some force from beneath pushed them away" It never says that Argo City was destroyed; a few pages earlier, Zor-El and his wife were discussing the possibility that his shields could save the city even if Krypton were destroyed.
It would be interesting if the author ever wrote a sequel and discussed there being survivors "still alive" from Argo City who were seeking to start over, to start a new home, with Krypton being destroyed. I did enjoy the different "cameos" and "shout-outs" to Superman's eighty-some years of comic history and backstory.
Some of them I recognized, and some I no doubt missed view spoiler [although the comments about "truth and justice.
Is it an airship? I am glad that I read it, but it was still a bit of a disappointment for me. I do not know if I will ever read it again, but it was [barely] worth the read the one time. Perhaps if I read it again, I will have changed my mind and enjoy it more. Feb 17, Tom Velasco rated it did not like it. It was absolute torture to read this monstrosity and I have longed for the day when I could safely put this down, knowing that I would never have to read another word again.
Without any exaggeration, I can say that this is the undisputed champion of crappy novels. Of all the books I've ever read, nothing comes close to this putrescent turd.
Not only was the diction puerile and stupid, the plotting ludicrous, a Ugh Not only was the diction puerile and stupid, the plotting ludicrous, and the characters laughable, but the book was so dreadfully boring.
This thing reminded me of the first creative writing assignment ever handed to me, assigned to my 11 year old, 6th grade self. It was a story not unlike this one: I envisioned a work of genius, but when my 6th grade teacher read it back to me aloud I was incredulous.
The piece just didn't come out as I'd thought it up. I remember her offering me basic, ubiquitously understood tips to improve my writing: This book needed my sixth grade teacher to edit it. The only thing that could save this book in my mind is if the entire thing was a joke by either Harper Collins or Kevin Anderson, demonstrating the absurdity of what one can push through publication and convince comic book nerds to read. If they're sitting back, watching us, saying, "ha!
Look at those guys! They paid good money for this thing and some are actually leaving good reviews Well done guys. Well done. Jul 30, Rob Lada-something rated it did not like it.
I don't want to waste too much time talking about how terrible this book was. Most of their characterizations were established by the book telling us that was the way they were. The book kept insisting that Jor-El was a genius who was well established in his community, but then he kept making idiotic decisions that didn't make any sen I don't want to waste too much time talking about how terrible this book was. The book kept insisting that Jor-El was a genius who was well established in his community, but then he kept making idiotic decisions that didn't make any sense and he was never trusted by the council governing Krypton's society.
The book couldn't decide what plot device was going to ensure the destruction of the planet. Is it going to be a sun going supernova?
Or maybe an asteroid that's headed straight for us! Surprise, it's actually none of these, because another method of destruction is introduced right at the end of the book. None of the character's motives made sense. Everything they did was to bumble through the plot without any sort of reasoning. All the characters were as flat as the Phantom Zone. The romance between Jor-El and Lara was laughable. Zod was a weakling who never would have accomplished a single thing if it weren't for the deus-ex-machina in the form of an alien kidnapping the capital city.
Fuck you, that's not how storytelling works. I'm sorry, Kevin Anderson. I enjoyed meeting you at Denver Comic Con this year and sitting in on your panel where you talked about how you always wanted to be an author and how much you enjoy it, but I'm not feeling it. This book sucked. This book takes place about 2 years before the birth of Superman, a. It tells a story about people trying to survives through great crisis.
I had not really read many comicbook-based novel, so this was new to me. The flow of the book moves smoothly through each of the chapters, which are short but have a lot of action throughout. The characters are entertai This book takes place about 2 years before the birth of Superman, a. The characters are entertaining, the good guys likable and the bad unlikable in a likable sort of way.
It was entertaining to see characters from movies and comic book react with each other, like an appearance of Brainac I wasn't expecting. I have not read many Superman comics, but in the ones I have read more recently, Superman tends to have a negative, "I am superior to all" I don't know, I actually prefer Batman. That said, I liked this book because it was not about Superman, but his family and where he came from, and thus where he's coming from.
I thought it was a little redundant to keep having all these catastrophes happen all at once, but I guess the action had to come from somewhere. There are many series I see clearly--like Jor-el creating the Phantom Zone and Lara saving him from it, which helped spark their romance. I enjoyed this book a lot and will have my eyes out for more comicbook-based novels.
Mar 28, Jeph rated it liked it. Anyone who is even remotely interested in comic books knows the story of Superman, the sole survivor of the doomed planet Krypton, sent to Earth in the planet's final moments to seek a new beginning under our strengthening yellow sun. However, few know the true story of Krypton itself. Why was the planet destroyed?
When and how? Who were Kal-El's parents, and what were they like? And just who is Zod? All these questions and more are answered in Kevin J. Anderson's The Last Days of Krypton.
