indiana jones and the dinosaur eggs is where Wu Han is introduced. There is a difference in how they meet between max mccoy books and the emperors tomb. But you meet him in both.

Anyway, back to the topic.

I haven't read the books in a while, but when I do, I read them all in order, so they kind of blend together in my mind. So I don't have a favorite book, but my favorite author is McCoy.

Indy novel suggestions

All of Rob MacGregor's, except "Indiana Jones and the Interior World."

None of Martin Caidin's.

All of Max McCoy's, without reservation and without delay. By far the greatest set of Indy novels.

Unicorn's Legacy isn't that good. Avoid it.
It's too spiritual.

I read "Indiana Jones and the White Witch" by Caidin. I got so bored I didn't finish it.
Maybe it's just me.
I've also read a few "choose your own adventure" books like "Indiana Jones and the Curse of Horror Island".
Don't know if they count as novels, though.

AAAck! I must post some good stuff about the White Witch to balance out all the negative towards it. It was my favorite! That and the Unicorns Legacy. I think I enjoyed them most because of the "spirituality" nature/old religion stuff that apparently repels others from these books. They also contained some strong romantic themes.....so perhaps thats why the guys aren't into them as much.
When choosing which ones to read first I immediately avoided Sky Pirates, just because I know that airplanes, military, shoot-em up books just arn't my type of book....horsies and magic????Ok now ya got me reeled in! Thats what great about all these books by different authors..there is definately something for everybody. So I can not really give a recomendation.. Read em all I guess! I have read 5 so far...and will eventually read the others..yup even Sky Pirates..(even though Indy is lookin' at his dorkiest on the cover!) the element of "magic" phychokenesis(sp?) could make it interesting for me.

Dinosaurs Eggs is good indeed..
but also Genesis Deluge and i think also Oracle of Delphi..
it's been a long while since I read them...

and seeing as they don't get published anymore here (in Dutch) I see them as collector's items so I don't want to damage them by reading them again hehe...

guess i should get them in English...

All are great reads that IJ could easily substitute as the lead character.

Recommendations

Hi Everybody,

I'm going on a train trip in two weeks to Albuquerque and I'm looking for a good Indy book to read on the way to pass the time. The only Indy book I've read is the novelization of "Raiders".

What book would you recommend for me to start with, and would be enjoyable for a trip?

Look a bit at the existing threads before you start another one with the same name.

If you want to delete this, then be my guest. I should have done some digging, rather than rush into posting.

I can't do anything in here. And I think that a merge would be better.

Well, the good thing is that you're not the first one doing that... and it's usually one of the smallest mishaps one can perform around here.

Merged, by the way.

TO THE MODS-still like you guys tho

In my personal opinion, if there is a really old thread that is brought up again...Hand's down I would rather go to a newer thread. I find it a lot easier to post when I don't have to read through pages of the conversation. Its good to respond early in a thread.

Absolutely

My favorite would have to be Hollow Earth, or Mystery of the Sphinx
