The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios' "Ant-Man." Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
I love Marvel stories and after seeing Ant-man at the movies I was really keen to share the movie tie in novel with my 12 year old niece, she tends to enjoy the Marvel stories as much as I do.
I must say that while I really enjoyed the book I was also a little disappointed. The story while inline with the start of the movie wasn't true to it, there were added bits and other bits left out completely. The novel also only covered the first half an hour or so of the movie so leaves you with lots of questions. I went looking to see if there was a second novel and was disappointed to find there wasn't a second one.
What I did really enjoy about the novel is how well the characters are built up, you quickly get to know the main character Scott and his background. You find yourself drawn to him and wanting life to change for him. You also get to a good outline of the other characters as well, they are well set up to play a bigger role in a second book.
My niece hasn't seen the movie but she really enjoyed the novel, like me though she felt it ended far too quickly and would of loved for it to be longer or for there to be a second novel. She really enjoyed the photos from the movie as well and is now waiting for it to come out on dvd so she can see the movie.
