Like Romancing the Stone, this is a movie tie-in for the movie of the same name. I've never enjoyed the movie much, so I was hoping that this would give me more detail and a reason to enjoy it. Sadly, it didn't live up to that hope.
Granted, there is plenty of action adventure and romance in this, but it didn't go into greater detail than that. The story often dragged for me, and the characterization was the same as the movie's. While we do get a few new tidbits, it wasn't enough to elevate the rating for me.
These will be nostalgia keepers really, I don't see myself re-reading them. In fact, I'll probably watch the movie before I picked the book up!
