Review: Guardians of the Galaxy: Rocket Racoon & Groot Steal The Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy: Rocket Racoon & Groot Steal The Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy: Rocket Racoon & Groot Steal The Galaxy by Dan Abnett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Honestly, I went with a mid score. I gave three stars to the action-filled parts and five stars to the story parts.

Why?

Well, the story parts first. Rocket and Groot. Of course! They’re the story. Funny, smartly written, fun to read. The narrator is Recorder 127, a digital humanoid who’s sole purpose is to record the events of the universe. And so he did until The Brotherhood decided he was worth death because he was recording in one of their hangouts. The tale has Rocket and Groot taking charge and keeping this recorder safe.

What they didn’t expect was that all of the universe was out for him for his information. Including the Negative zone. Which is how Gamora entered the story.

It winds up twisty, and intense and keeps to the Guardians of the Galaxy canon. It was a really good story where I found myself laughing more times than not. (Like the movie for me.) Very fun. I couldn’t recommend this more.

But then we have the action chapters. Words seemed to get jumbled and the pictures scrambled in my head. I have to have a sort of dyslexia when it come to this type of story, because it’s hard for me to follow and i have to read it over and over a few times to really get the image. (Which is why watching sci-fi, action is better before the book.) It felt like too much sometimes. And then people/creatures would appear and I’d have to back track to find when they could have come into the scene…

I personally didn’t like reading it, but if i skipped it, then i was missing new characters and events that were essential to the story.

Hence the four stars.

If you’re like me and cannot read action very well, you might want to skip this one. If you love Guardians, Rocket Racoon, Groot stories, then YES read it!

  1. I read this back in 2015. Very entertaining & the writing doesn’t get in the way of the story.
