Legend 33
If you're an X-Files fan and a reader, then this is one of the best of the many X-Files novels that have been released over the years.

The story and the idea behind the story are really interesting. The usual conspiracy that floats around the agents is there, just like in the TV show. There is plenty of mystery surrounding the plot. That the agents go through things they wouldn't have gone through in the TV show is also fun! I like thinking about them in a different way like that. Though, a lot of the time, they don't really act like true blue fans of the show have come to expect them to act. It's not always easy to put Mulder or Scully's face or voice with the character on the page. I think that sort of thing is to be expected, though, when you're seeing them through a written format instead of visually on a screen.

This is a fast read with action that gets started right away and doesn't let up. It's a fun sci-fi/mystery with horror elements even if you're not a big fan of the show. Highly recommended!

I finished this a few weeks ago and was disappointed. It's not that Mezrich isn't a good writer; he's probably the best of the bunch among the X-Files novel adaptationists.

Here's where things go south in Skin.

After Mulder and Scully get Skinner's permission to go to Thailand to pursue leads, it seems that the detail, atmosphere, and grittiness, which Mezrich does a great job of setting up, are largely tossed out the window. In Thailand, the atmosphere seems forced, the villians cardboard cutouts, and the plot preposterous.

Also, if you were a fan of Mulder's wry humor, there's little if any of that to be found here.

Kevin J. Anderson's novelizations, while not perfect, remain true to the spirit of the TV show.

I would like to start by stating that I thoroughly enjoyed this latest novelization of "The X-Files". While I would still rank "Ruins" as my favorite of the six novelizations of one of the world's favorite television series, this one certainly ranks up there. As I read the book, I could see the plot easily transferred into a two hour movie version of the series. With his first novelization, author Ben Mezrich (reportedly hand-picked by creator Chris Carter to pen this novel) does an excellent job of creating an X-File that is part scientific (for Agent Scully) yet paranormal enough to fire the interests of Agent Mulder. In the end, the reader is left with some blanks to fill in and the storyline does not completely resolve itself, the hallmark of a true X-File episode. The plot itself maintains a steady pace with enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested, yet does not confuse with too many diversions. Likewise, the characters are written to describe them physically, and yet insight into their personalities and motivations are provided mostly from observations of their actions and their words. The reader is not buried under paragraphs full of endless streams of consciousness rife with the motivations and desires of each character. But we are permitted almost as much a glance as perhaps is afforded Agents Mulder and Scully from their interactions with these characters. The agents themselves are characterized true to form. The author seems to feel more comfortable with the Mulder character. He describes his feelings of excitement and almost delight over the possibility of an X-File puzzle to explore, as well as providing us with plenty of witty "mulderisms" to produce a smile and giggle. Agent Scully is portrayed as more a slave to science, as well as to humanity, who seems to generally tolerate Mulder's forays into the unbelieveable, but does not dismiss them totally. Their well-oiled partnership, filled with trust, support and respect, is portrayed well in this novel. However, "shippers" beware, this novel has been deemed "noromo" safe. From the streets of New York City to the jungles of Thailand, Ben Mezrich has taken our favorite duo, as well as their reader, for a spine tingling ride, guaranteed to give your skin goosebumps.

If you don't already know X Files characters and mythology, read another book. If you DO have the background, however, you'll find this book a good read and an interesting was to see Mulder and Scully in action.

This by far is the best X-Files novel written to date. It is a classic "monster-of-the-week" that had me sitting on the edge of my seat. The story is well written and consistent with several X-Files themes. The characterizations of "leaps in logic" Mulder and "skeptical" Scully were right on the mark. While I would have liked a little more "shippiness," the tale is true to Mulder and Scully's relationship - the subtle touches, private conversations, and concern for each other are naturally integrated into the plot. It is clear that Ben Mexrich is an advid fan and devoted follower of the show.
Chris Carter - let this man write an episode!
This book is as lively, well paced, and 'out there' as the series. I wonder if there is truly a Thai legend that is the frame for this story.
