This is just the comic book being read with a voice cast and sound affects in the background. If you've read/remember the comic then it's not terrible, but if you haven't I would recommend just finding a copy of that and reading it. The lack of description that the pictures in the comic would normally give the reader gets annoying even for someone who remembers reading the comic.
I love Batman but I haven't read the Knightfall comics or novelization yet. Without that background, this presentation is difficult to follow. It moves very rapidly, with too many characters to keep track of in my opinion. I might revisit this after I have read the comics.
I read this novel a few years ago and i enjoyed the hell out of it. One of the first books i couold never put down!! I hope that someone reading it to me doesnt make it worst but we will see. The graphic novel, although not as in debth as the book does include many more pictures so that may be more enjoyable the first time you read this story line.
I've had this in my collection for 13 years now and I still listen to it. It does move very fast and there are plenty of characters that might confuse the listener, but the action and the music supply one of the most dramatic radio dramas I've ever listened to. I've found this production far better than most of the actual Batman movies that are out there. There are some Batman fanatics who might tear it apart more for characterization, but even then I've heard nothing but a positive responce with the exception of one review... but I would highly take a listen to it.
I like comic books. I haven't read Knightfall, but I've read enough Batman to be able to picture in my head what is going on. This performance was so confusing and uninspiring that I had to stop after the fourth track of the first CD. I love audio books, and audio performances but whoever wrote this adaptation, judging by the poor use of effects and description (necessary to make such a performance effective), has never listened to an old-fashioned radio drama. My advice: Go listen to the Star Wars radio dramas instead.
