This book is just like the movie. Everything from what they said to what the they did. I was interested in this book because I saw the movie Underworld Awakening, and I though it was fantastic. I remember that I saw the other 3 movies before I read this book, but I forgot what the movie was about so I thought to read it.
I love the Book. I couldn't believe how much chemistry there was between Selene and Michael. the characters felt...more
The first movie is fascinating with its casts and the body bending and twists but the book is a stand-alone book that could stand on its own.
In the movie, Selene was a silent huntress who preys lycan for centuries. She was in an elite group of vampires called Death Dealers who stalks Lycans to near extinction. She was a woman with fewer word...more
I thoroughly enjoyed as I have been a fan of the Underworld films since I was taken to see it with my father in 2003. A...more
The writer offered much more insight to the characters and their thoughts, as novelizations should. I really enjoy the chemistry between Michael and Selene, so the fact that the attraction and the developm...more
The novel is an extremely good read, a novelization of the movie by the same name. The book is better than the movie, in that it gives the reader a much more in-depth feel of the char...more
I read it since I watch "underworld:awakening" and wondered about the other 3.
I must say, this is a must read if you like the movie, there is a lot more explaination about what is going on and what each character is thinking and feel while in the movie they are just doing things wordlessly. it makes it so much better.
I haven't read much vampire or female lead novel lately, since i couldn't find one that draw me in. I wish there is more badass vampire lead novel around, character like selene. I...more
Por lo demás una experiencia fantástica. Me siento una "friki" de Underworld tras leerlo puesto que en esta novelización hay más detalles y escenas que en la película no aparecen (quizás en una versión extendida...).
Volví a ver la peli y la verdad es que noté la falta de todas esas escenas, dejándome la sensa...more
The plot captivates you from the first page. Taking two of horrors most legendary creatures and pitting them against each other, Underworld grabs an old...more
By about halfway through, I was definitely getting there and ended up with 4 stars.
I liked the descriptive language and use of adjectives, I liked the settings, and the heroine didn't annoy me... Well fancy that!
I thought the movie was a good action romp, but the book was just plain dull.
I had all three books on tap to read, but after this, I'm not going to waste my time, it is just mediocre pablum.
Not sure I've ever read anything quite this amateurish being passed off as a professionally written novel. Yes, yes. Novelization of a mediocre action flick. I get it.
But my god. 10% of the way through and thinking ruefully of the hour or so of my life that could have been spent watching my ceiling fans rotate.
