Batman Knightfall review

Batman Knightfall is a gripping tale of an old Batman, a new Batman, and the many trials and errors the superheros go through. Dennis O'Neil does a marvelous job in keeping the reader in suspense throughout the book's whole three-hundred and fifty pages. The title of the novel,"Batman Knightfall", means the fall of the "Dark Knight", who is Batman or also the billionaire Bruce Wayne. "Batman Knightfall" takes place during present-day in the city of Gotham. "Batman Knightfall" contains the usual characters that are associated with Batman. These characters being Batman a.k.a Bruce Wayne, Robin a.k.a Tim Drake, the butler Alfred, Commissioner Gordon and not to mention the usual bad guys such as the Joker and Two-Face. The novel also contains some new characters like Dr.Kinsolving, who nurses Batman back to god health after a near death injury, Bane, who is a physical phenomenon and is only set on the destruction fo Batman, and a new Batman. The cover of the novel, which gives interlude to the plot, is the Batman sign divided in half by two different colors. It symbolizes the re-birth of Batman. "Batman Knightfall" is a great novel that keeps the reader in suspense throughtout the whole batman experience. From a scale of one to ten I'd rate it a 9. Largely due to the fact that it was so well written that I often found myself getting very much "into" the plot of the story. Dennis O'Neil uses a great descriptive vocabulary that enables the reader to visualize what is happening in the novel. The "golden line" of the novel is when Tim Drake asks Bruce Wayne on page three-hundred and forty-two,"Bruce, is there still a Batman?". Meaning if Bruce will continue to be Batman or if he will apoint another or maybe just not have another Batman ever again. If you really want to know you have to read the novel. I definitly recommend this book to everyone, Batman lovers or not, this book is so well written that you can't pass up reading it. Just remember the name is "Batman Knightfall" by Dennis O'Neil.

Enter O'Neils Gotham, You Won't be Disappointed

This is the only book I have read twice. Well written, great depiction, entertainging, 'nuff said. Usually when I read a book, its like I'm being forced to. With this, I LOVED IT!

Fun And Exciting!

I am so tired of novels based on comic books that are too serious. "Batman: Knightfall" by Dennis O'Neil is a fun ride of a read. It transports us into the strange and wonderful world of Batman the way I imagine it to be. He writes the characters wonderfully. But I love this novel because it also has the elements of a great movie. I say that if Hollywood really wants to make a movie that accurately captures Batman's world with the look and feeling, then they should get Tim Burton or Joel Schumacher to read this book. "Batman: Knightfall" is intriguing, action-packed, and just a fun read. I was never bored by this book and recommend it for someone bored of serious books, who wants to escape. "Batman: Knightfall" is also noirish, it's like watching "Dark City" again. The settings are wonderfully gothic, exotic, thrilling, and vastly entertaining. This is a book that has drama, romance, intrigue, and magnificent suspense. This looks and feels like a movie, and that is what I loved most about it.


Batman has always been one of my favorites, on screen, in comics, but I just could never find a good novel about him. Until I read this! The detail is awesome and killer, action is powerful, and the all-powerful Bane is truly a villain. Books like this one should be written more often. Pick it up Batman fans, or you're going to miss out totally!!!!!!
