I noticed that there had been Zero reviews for this and so I thought I'd go ahead and let others know how I felt.

I literally just finished this book not even 3 minutes ago. I've been glued to it since I got it. It's a pretty quick and fast read. But very engaging. I very very much enjoyed this prose novel! Just a warning for those who have seen the movie and might think this is related. They bare the same title and have the same basic plot. But this is not based on the movie. It's based on the c

The future is closer than it seems

This is a classic x-men tale and now it's in novel form we have a chance to really get into the ins and the outs of the future that the x-men face in the camps. We see what happens when there is a last dish effort to stop the sentinels...we see them older and very tired from the horrors they have faced. However at the same time we see the present day showing the start of Storms leadership and her sheer power and beauty in leading her team. This is a fantastic r

As a comic blogger who reviews every novel I read, every now and then I read a superhero inspired novel. I’ve read several in the past; the fun She Hulk Diaries, the decent The Incredible Hulk: Abominations, and the mediocre Civil War novelization. But since I read more X-Men comics than anything else, it’s about time I read an X-Men novel. Enter X-Men: Days of Future Past, adapted by Alex Irvine. Before I get into this book, just know that I’m writing this from the perspective of someone who’s ...more
I'm a big fan of the X-Men movies and Days of Future Past is one of my top favorites. I have never read the comics though. I am not a huge fan of comics, simply because I read them too quickly to be worth the money. When I saw this in a local bookstore, I thought it would be the perfect compromise. I would get the story of the comics in a book format I enjoy.

Unfortunately, I don't think the comic story was well suited to a novelization. It has so much action and fighting scenes that it's slight

Fast read. Another novelization of some comics; this time it is just two comic books turned into a 254-page novel. The two comics are also what the most recent X-men movie was based upon; however, several changes were made in the movie [including additional mutants, Wolverine going back through time, and Kitty being utilized to send Logan back]. It was a well-written adaptation; I did enjoy it. It also expanded upon and added to the two comics; otherwise, there would not be enough 'stuff' to ...more

Read my full review at!

The prose novel stays fairly close to the comic, while making a few changes to be able to stretch the story out to a novel’s worth. Kitty wakes up in the future and spends time with them, to understand their plight and to fast-forward the action so the group isn’t carrying too many limp bodies around into action. We see much more of the lesser-known X-Men like Franklin Richards and Rachel Summers, and more about Logan’s Canadian Resistance

I have listened to the Graphic Audio adaptation of the Alex Irvine adaptation of the graphic novel compilation of the comic books written by Chris Claremont and eight other authors, with art from eleven pencilers, seventeen inkers... well, the point is, lots of people involved. (Wasn't there a film in there somewhere, too?) Fittingly, there are twenty-one voice actors featured in this audio book. Usually such art-by-committee is a recipe for disaster, but I really enjoyed hearing this one. It's ...more

This is the first comic-to-prose adaptation I've read. I didn't know what to expect. Sometimes the transition of what you *see* in a comic panel into words is clunky and there are times I think the prose itself is just the result of clunky writing. Clunky example: "Okay. Good. That's all I got," he said, and died. But the story is engrossing all the same. I'll definitely read more of Marvel's prose novels.

Uno de los mejores audiolibros de Marvel que he escuchado de la gente de GA; muy buenas actuaciones y efectos de sonido como es habitual. La adaptación de Irvine de la historia original de Claremont añade más detalles a la historia pero no son accesorios, van muy bien para aclarar muchas cosas de la trama, aunqie a veces las escenas se alarguen un poco. Muy entretenido.

I really liked it but it was really boreing in the middle. The end is the best part but the middle of the story is soar. It is about how all mutants are destroyed in the future. The few mutants that are still alive send one person back and with a mission to change history.

Maybe a generous three-star rating. Irvine works in bits for other issues and tries to accommodate some of the retconning that has taken place in the 23+ years between the issues and the novelization. It isn't bad, per se, but it does not do much to sell the universe or the characters.

This was good. I liked it less than some of the other X-Men novelizations that I have read but still quality story telling.
