Captain Marvel YA Novel Reviews
CAROL DANVERS AND MARIA RAMBEAU AND FOUND FAMILY AND JUST SO MUCH THANK YOU
4.5 stars. Other than a reference to “Cap” and “Stark Industries,” and the main character’s name, there’s not a lot that anchors this in the Marvel universe. The story would work completely on its own, so it will work for both non-Marvel fans and the Marvel faithful. Having seen the movie, this gives some backstory to Carol's air force start and to the relationship with her best friend who is in the movie. I wouldn't say it's essential to read this to understand the movie, but I felt my understa ...more
Fun, quick read. I haven’t seen the movie yet so it was a great way for me to get introduced to the characters. I really liked the development of Carol and Maria in this novel (which is surprisingly done well for such a small story). Carol and Maria were so much fun to read about and they were just wonderfully strong females that teens will love to read about in this YA novel. Overall, I found it fun and entertaining and cannot wait to see the film.
This was kinda like reading a self-help book for gently smashing the patriarchy and learning to believe in yourself, except also it's about Carol Danvers and Maria Rambeau going to flight school. Is it a little cheesy and unsubtle? Totally. Did I mind? Not at all.
I loved the relationship between Maria and Carol. This book chronicles their time at the Air Force academy and it was so great. This a wonderful story for anyone seeking more especially after the Captain Marvel film!
I fell in love with Captain Marvel during Kelly Sue DeConnick’s amazing run of the comic, which introduced that fantastic new costume. With a new film on the horizon, Marvel is putting out a lot of new merchandise, including books. I have enjoyed many of Marvel Press’ YA line of novels, so I immediately preordered this. And, I was blown away.
The book is set during Carol’s first year at the US Air Force Academy. She has no powers and she hasn’t become a pilot yet. Honestly, I think this is what m ...more
This is a wonderful little middle grade prequel to the film which takes place during Carol’s first year in the Air Force Academy. I would recommend for anyone seeing the movie!
This book did what it set out to do. It was an engaging YA that gave a clear voice to Carol Danvers as a protagonist and her best friend, Maria Rambeau, as well as distinct personalities to the secondary characters in Carol's flight group. It had the subtext of a feminist message which comes about as Carol, with dreams of making history, tries to work her way up in an organization that operates like an old boys' club.
It's a good read that I think teens will enjoy.
