Very disappointing to read this after Kotzwinkle's brilliant adaptation of E.T. He tries hard to flesh out Richard Pryor's character and almost succeeds in making Gus Gorman humorous and interesting, if still not believable, and also brings some depth to the theme of Superman's identify crisis, but ultimately the source material is awful and so is this 'novel'.

One of the very first BIG novels I ever reads (way way back in third grade). Even then I remember how much more epic in scope and feel it was, compared to the actual film. Flipping through an old copy recently, I found that it brought back very warm & happy memories...AND that it remained a pretty damn good film adaptation.

I got this from Scholastic Book Club in 7th grade or so, even though I hadn't seen the movie, because it was written by William Kotzwinkle who did such a wonderful novelization of E. T. The Extra Terrestrial. I remember almost nothing about it except that it wasn't that good.

This was the first "novel" I ever read.
