Smallville Novel Series - Arrival

Smallville Novel Series - Arrival - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006

Can't get enough of Smallville on TV? Fear not cause here comes the Smallville novels which are, of course, based on the hit, WB TV series. Kidzworld tells ya if they're worth a read.

Author: Michael Teitelbaum

Before the legend... before the icon... there was a teenager named Clark Kent.

Clark Kent, a teenage boy dealing with all the awkward things that everyone goes through - like shapeshifting classmates, heat-sucking classmates and bug-controlling classmates. And people wonder why attendance is down at Smallville High? It's Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Teens on a really, really bad day. You thought you had problems? At least the dirt from your home turf doesn't make you all weak-kneed. Green with envy? I'm not. And to the best of my knowledge, there is no Clearasil kryptonite treatment.

But, if you still can't get enough of that Smallvillian stuff on the pretty picture box, fear not cause here comes the Smallville novels which are, of course, based on the hit, WB TV series.

Arrival, the first in the series, revisits the meteor shower that made a mess of little Lex Luthor's curly locks and turned every second person in Smallville, into an X-Files wannabe. So, if you missed the premiere episode on 'da TV, then I suppose this is an all right way to get up to speed.

This book, based on the screenplay by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Shanghai Noon, Shanghai Knights and the sequel to last year's Spider-Man), isn't really much more than a blow-by-blow of what happened on the small screen. Arrival didn't leave me with that wanting-to read-the-next-book feeling.

On the up, up and away side though, the next couple of books in the series See No Evil, Flight and Pet Peeve are written by award winners Cherie Bennett and Jeff Gottesfeld, and have a bit more verbal muscle to them.

    Because unfortunately the humans now have very weak memories and they can forget what happened to them yesterday also. So if they take selfies they will remember what happened by looking at them. Sometimes they can forget how they look so selfies help them remember. :D What is a table?
