My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have not watched the movie that this book is based on. Just so we’re clear where I’m starting from. Also, have not watched any other Wonder Woman movie or read any other book. In general you could say I’ve not had any exposure to Wonder Woman or her story. Now that that is out of the way…

I’m a super fan of Greek Mythology, and am interested in Wonder Woman’s backstory more than what she’s doing now. I don’t have to hand the story of Zeus and the Amazons, but I love the connection and origins.

It seems a little too neat that she surfaces during WWII. I guess I’m a little biased here because Captain America surfaced during WWII as well and having two superheroes being “born” at that time is just a little too coincidental and well, easy.

Apart from that, I do appreciate her attitude towards the humans. She’s a no nonsense lady. However, why do we need a love scene between her and Steve Trevor? It adds nothing to the story.

Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised enough that I may have to watch the movie now.

Get it on Amazon
