    " Possibly the worst book ever. Reads like a rough outline for a much better book. No characterization, not much in the way of plot, REALLY bad writing. Avoid - unless you're currently studying bad writing. "

    " An exciting and (considering how often the story has been told and re-told) surprisingly fresh insight into the back-story of one of the most iconic fictional figures of the last century. Anderson has united elements of many of the various back-stories behind Krypton, but in doing so has put a wholly new spin on the destruction of Krypton. The story is elegantly put together, The characters are well developed, and yet still very comprehensible in their motivations and actions. The setting is as epic as we might expect from a 'long-dead, extremely powerful civilisation' and in spite of the fact that we all know the ending, Anderson manages to create a surprising amount of suspense. All in all this has something for everyone, from the die-hard Superman comics fans, to those who only know him from the 2006 movie. For those who have yet to enter the world of Superman, however, I recommend looking elsewhere first and then coming back to this book. While prior knowledge is not strictly necessary in order to enjoy The Last Days of Krypton; without it, you'll miss a lot of little references to things to come and so won't get nearly as much out of it as you could.

    " I enjoyed this book. It was fun seeing an amalgamation of some of the different stories that we know about Krypton in the Superman universe. "
