  • By Travis on September 24, 2012

    I'm going to start this review by saying there are spoilers from book and movie.Okay so it wasn't the best (but certainly not the worst) piece of Resident Evil related fiction that I've ever read but overall I did find it to be enjoyable, with just a few notable things that I had a problem with. Overall it stuck fairly well to the source material, expanding nicely on a few things where it could be, but there were a few places that deviated quite a bit (if you do not wish to have anything SPOILED feel free to stop reading here, the story isn't bad and I think it is worth a read) with some of the bigger points being highlighted noted.1) Albert Wesker (as seen in Resident Evil: Afterlife) was a clone and was killed aboard the Arcadia before Jill attacked. The book had nothing about his escape with the VTOL jet, much less the jet's destruction and Wesker's actual survival thanks to a parachute.2) There is no mention of the Red Queen at all. In and of itself not the worst thing (I can accept that it was a backup of her in the movie but I would have liked a little more background on her takeover of Umbrella) but without her at all it makes it appear that Jill was the person in charge of Umbrella Prime (though it retains her being controlled by someone/thing thanks to the Scarab device).3) There was a side plot that started about halfway through the story and only really popped up every few chapters until it took over as most of the final hundred pages. I have no issues with side plots but it involved a random group of people who went from Umbrella Prime to Catalina Island after stealing Jill's submarine. The characters kind of came out of nowhere and returned there by the end.4) There was very brief section (around a paragraph) which implied that Jill and Leon were partners in S.T.A.R.S. before the Arklay incident but she seems to be the only one to remember that.5) The one thing that I really did like (and would have enjoyed seeing in the movie) was Rain mutating after injecting herself with Las Plagas during the final battle.6) The only encounter in the New York test zone was between Alice and a 'Rain' zombie, no Executioner battle.

    Note: There may be spoilers in this post. For the love of anything that you value, please save your money. After seeing all of the other Resident Evil movies and reading the books, I have to say that this is easily the weakest of the series. The characters are laughably bad. Characters who were once dead in the series show up as either clones. In fact, in many cases there are twin clones: one good and one bad. The ending will leave you confused as to whether a certain character is on the good side or the bad side. As I stated at the beginning of the review, please save your money. If you enjoy the Resident Evil series, RE6 is coming out in a couple of weeks and there is no way it can be worse than this book turned out.

    Brought to you by OBS reviewer SammySynopsis:Resident Evil: Retribution will be released in 3D on September 14, 2012. It is the fifth installment in the massively successful Resident Evil film series, based on the hugely popular Capcom survival horror video game series Resident Evil. The movie stars Milla Jovovitch and Wentworth Miller and is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.In this official novelization, Alice fights alongside a resistance movement in the continuing battle against the Umbrella Corporation and the undead. (Goodreads)Review:I have only seen the movies and have not seen the movie that this book represents, with that said I find this story to be an excellent addition to this series. I have been watching the movies since they came out and even though clearly it's about zombies, it's so much more than that. I have never seen or played the game. I loved how we get to see the softness in Alice and her wondering about maybe having a family and children or if she even could, that doesn't come across very well in the movies. So that was a really nice new touch for me.Now, a couple of sentences in the book sparked some incredible conversations. First, let me give some background. I used to be a Sign Language Interpreter, my son and his wife are both State Certified Interpreters and my youngest daughter who just graduated High School is going to college to be an Interpreter. My middle son is deaf. So our family knows about deafness and Sign Language. Here are the sentences that had not only us talking but others as well."It's going to be okay," Alice signed back. It was easier to lie when no one could hear your voice." I had a strong reaction to those sentence since Sign Language is not just your hands talking, there are other parameters of signing, body language and facial expressions etc... ,so I asked around. We discovered there was no yes or no depending on how it was looked at. What we did figure out was if you were a good liar, hearing or deaf then you would be able to pull it off. This would be an excellent research project in the real world, what are the tells of a deaf or signing person be, are they different than for hearing people who voice? It brought up so many questions. Thank you!Back to the story, action packed as are all the movies. I think what really makes this book great was not only seeing inside Alice a bit more, but also, seeing Jill and how she catches glimpses of who she was. I would have liked to see more of what happens to Dori, Judy, Tom and the rest of the gang. Maybe in the next book. I enjoyed all the new creepy crawlies and flying monsters. The lickers were described wonderfully, yuck. The story line about the clones brought to mind, howthings could go really wrong and abusive. Of course, the book takes it to the max, but that makes a person think. How would we treat clones? Would we consider them expendable in the same ways at some point?I was reading this story for fun and entertainment and it brought up such an interesting connection to real life for me had me giving it 5 stars, over all it's a great story to the series. It's action packed with great questions to ask ourselves throughout the story. Even if you don't know the movies this book gives enough background to read alone. I highly recommend this book for young adults to anyone who enjoys the sci-fi/horror genres.This review and more at openbooksociety dot com

    resident evil DUH!!!

    It is a good book (although I still have a few more chapters till I finish it). My biggest complaint was that it seems like no one really sat and proof read the book! They misspell Wesker's name at one point saying it was "Wexler" or something like that. Also at one point, Alice has no boots, then magically gets a pair of boots, then somehow she is barefoot again- with no explanation at all. And it flips between boots and no boots quickly. Otherwise, it does fill in where the movie left out things. Aside from the lack of proof reading it is a good book.

    Unlike some of the res evil adaption that added alot of extra content this one does not. Still I loved the movie so I love this book.
