Ready to investigate Umbrella at their Austrian headquarters though suspecting Umbrella's "real" headquarters to be elsewhere , Jill reunites with Chris and Barry and they set off for their plane in New York.
On the night of October 3, rookie police officer Leon Kennedy is driving to Raccoon City from New York, not having been there since his grandparents were alive. Expecting the traffic to be bad, he made sure to call the desk sergeant the night before, but got no reply.
With the traffic ruining his Afternoon, he has no time to check out his apartment and will have to start his shift immediately. Thinking about the murder reports, Leon is confident that Irons will assign him to the murder case when he finds how professional he is. A Lost in his thoughts, he nearly has an accident ten miles from the city as a zombie dog runs in front of his jeep on an eerily deserted stretch of highway.
As he arrives in Raccoon City, he notices that the city is seemingly abandoned, going straight through a street with a number of bars and no one around. He is comforted when he sees two men shamble down, believing they must be drunk.
Leon puts the brakes on his car when he sees a murder of crows surrounding some roadkill. Looking closer, he recognises it as a partially devoured woman. After examining the woman, he hears groans behind him, and is surrounded by zombies. Eventually admitting that they are zombies, Leon is forced to escape on foot, bullets having little effect and being separated from the car. With none of the three answering, she had decided to drive to Raccoon City straight from college.
Arriving in the city, she notes the city is abandoned as well, though sees a large group of apparently-drunken people walking down a road. She stops at Emmy's, a diner where she and Chris usually met. Entering, she finds the diner empty - this is odd given it is an all-night diner and isn't even 9PM. As she's about to leave, she hears a grunt in the corner. The grunt is revealed to be coming from a zombie as it devours a headless waitress.
Claire tries to flee, but sees more zombies assembled outside the front door. As she runs through the back door, she meets Leon. Hell, in some cut audio from Resident Evil 5: Lost in Nightmares , Jill teases Chris about flirting with a coworker that is younger than them. The only two real romantic type couples are Claire and Steve in Code: Veronica and Leon and Ada in basically any Resident Evil media they appear in together.
And boy, do I have feelings on that, mostly because I hate the Leon B scenario. But I digress. The problem with the story is that I felt like, despite this probably being the longest Resident Evil novel of Perry's, it felt empty.
Yes, if you cut down the puzzles in the game, it's not that long of a story at all, but Perry makes it feel even shorter, especially because she cut scenes from the game out as well. The most we get is Claire finding Leon after he'd been shot by Annette, and he has her run after Ada before passing out.
That's it. This also brings up something obnoxious that Perry does in later novels pertaining to Leon and Claire, but I'll discuss that in the next book. Other than that, Leon and Claire were characterized close enough to their game counterparts. Ada, on the other hand, is given terrible characterization. In the game, we, the players, were never sure where her allegiance was.
A third party? In this, since Perry was as clueless as we were, she tied her original character, Trent, into Ada's mission. And really, continuity aside, this bothered me. We don't know Trent's plans, but he helped the renegade S. It's like Perry was trying to show that Ada was one of the good guys, since Trent, as mysterious as he is, has been helping the heroes, so by extention, Ada is as well. Even if I ignore that, her inner musings were just so wrong for Ada's character. She kept telling herself that she was a hardened mercenary, that she was going to be rich enough to retire on a private island, blah blah blah, and then she meets Leon and starts fretting about how it's "not like her" to care, or daydreams about settling down with him and having kids.
Um, are you kidding me? I am probably Ada's biggest hater really, I despise her character , and even I call bullshit on this. Yes, Ada has saved Leon's ass and Capcom really needs to stop having her do this.
Damnation, and Resident Evil 6 all have Ada meddling in Leon's business in some way and saving him.
I'm tired of it , but it's not because of some deep love and affection for him. Ada Wong has always had an agenda, no matter who she's working for, and if it came down to it, I think she would sacrifice Leon for her mission, even though Capcom would never let that happen because Leon is too popular. This is basically the bulk of the book. Claire and Sherry run away from Mr. X the T Tyrant , and we get Leon and Ada's sappy soap opera drama, sprinkled with zombies. I don't think either of them really add anything to the story, honestly.
Inconsistencies from Game to Book: Trent hiring Ada to steal the G-virus. Ada was hired by a company that is Umbrella's rival and her contact was Wesker. I'm not a fan, because having Ada just so happen to pick up Sherry's locket and carry it around for no damned reason annoys me.
A blending of the scenarios would have been better, where Sherry is pursued by Mr. X because of her locket and Birkin because of her DNA. That would make Leon's scenarios pointless, true, but he could be with Claire more instead of having him pant after Ada like a lost puppy.
Ada was coincidentally in a relationship with John Howe, who worked for Umbrella. This gives her an excuse to be in Raccoon City. Ada was sent by the rival company to get close to Dr. John Clemens because he was the head researcher in the Arklay labs. This is the excuse she uses to explain why she's in Raccoon City. Jill leaves with Chris and Barry to go to Europe. Chris goes to Europe. Barry relocates his family to Canada.
Jill stays in Raccoon City. There are a lot more, but that's because of how much Perry cut that was originally in the game. Like I said, this is a huge book for how little is actually shown. When it boils down to it, this book is very much "Leon went here. Claire did this. Leon said this. Claire saw this" and lots of inner monologues about musings and feelings. Aug 08, Kristin rated it it was ok Shelves: It was okay.
I'm not sure what it was Wash, rinse, repeat, and here I am months later after finally finishing it. The writing felt a little I understand from other reviewers unfortunately, I got into the games too late to play RE2 that some of the embellishments from the last books were wrangled in some which were a bit much in the last two.
So maybe that's some of It was okay. So maybe that's some of the problem? The book read sort of like a guide book without the puzzle answers. I don't know But I did finish it finally so it deserves at least two stars, even if it took me almost a year to read to the end. Mar 17, Rroyce rated it it was amazing.
I have played four of the ten video games of resident evil. The games and volume 3 alike overflow with gore.
I prefer the books with a great deal more of back story and less monster gore and time spent learning gaming pattern intimidation. The books have a feel of letters, journal entries, and a telling that weave them into actual plausibility. I can still hear Leon as he meets Claire in the zombie filled streets. They planned to meet at the police station but again plans go astray and you must I have played four of the ten video games of resident evil.
They planned to meet at the police station but again plans go astray and you must read more to find out what happens next. Loved it!! As a fan of the video game series, this novelization is spot on. Gripping descriptions of the horror that had me glued to the television in suspense while playing the Resident Evil game. Loved every second of this! Mar 18, Craig rated it it was amazing. Loved this one. Scary A worthy adaptation of the second Resident Evil game in this series.
This book featured a lot more death and terror than the first two books. Give it a read. Fun adaptation This was a great ada tion of the original game and a good way to get the perspective of other characters.
Aug 29, Vassia Dimokosta rated it it was amazing. I really liked this version of the events. It showed the more human side of some characters, as well as the insanity of a certain Police Chief.
May 16, Douglas rated it liked it Shelves: Giving it a clean 3 seems more harsh than intended. It really wasn't bad. Not a 4, but not a 3. Good Overall it is a good book,the only problem I think is that it didn't exactly followed the game cabin story.
May 23, Elise rated it liked it. This surprised me; it was better than I expected. The pace is fast and entertaining. It's also an easy book to read. I hadn't read the two prior books and it didn't matter, which is great.
This was a fun read based pretty closely on the game. If you like the games, you'll like the books. Mar 20, Alicia Margarita rated it liked it Shelves: It doesn't follow the cannon story, but it was enjoyable. Mar 06, Matilda rated it it was amazing. Aug 11, Dylan rated it really liked it. This is a short, general review for the first 3 books of S. Book 1: Book 2 was a terrible This is a short, general review for the first 3 books of S.
I found it more interesting to see how the characters acted when it was their first encounter with the T-Virus and they never really knew what was going on. Another reason is the inclusion of Mr. Albert Wesker. The dude is totally awesome.
Sort of out of order, but I will go from mentioning what I liked most about book 1 to what I like generally about the series so far. First, of course, are the characters. Now, I was already familiar with the characters due to the various movies and games, but I thought the characters were really written well and matched up with how they were perceived in both of the other types of media.
The author did a great job at gathering the story and stayed very true to the games, which is great. Lastly, the descriptions are great. In particular, I loved how well the G-Virus monsters. Now, with that out of the way, book 2 was pretty bad. That was odd, since I enjoyed Rebecca just fine in the first book. Something just… changed. Like I mentioned, blanking of the mind touched the blood with her finger, then proceeded to wipe her eye with the same finger. Yes, that sounds like a great idea.
Ugh, women… joking hide spoiler ] Book 3 was close to book 1, but, mentioned earlier, I liked book one better. Most of the elements that made book 1 strong came back in full strength in book 3.
I loved the characters and how they were portrayed, and the monsters were frightening, like they should be.
