While a lot of this was about our heroes learning more about themselves and kicking Starlord in the ass about his whininess, most of it was about Rocket and his story and I would watch Rocket and Groot and their sidekicks all day long. There's a lot of found family here and learning how to cope with loss and how to face up to your fears and I found it a very enjoyable film.

Warnings though of animal experimentation.

B (Good).

It's too long, and not everything in it works. But it's often surprisingly emotional for a James Gunn movie.

Note: I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of reviewing with the lowest amount of bias.

The characters match their game counterparts, but the book is paced out in a way that prevented me from getting a firm grasp on what was happening and why I was supposed to be emotionally invested in it. The time keeps hopping back and forth but with the same characters, so it is difficult to keep track of what situation the heroes were in at any given time.

I listened to the audiobook version: I did not like the narrator though. His Gamora voice and his Kor-El voice hardly sounded any different and his switching between character voices wasn't very smooth.

2023 movie #84. 2023. All the explosions, weird aliens and comic banter you expect but a more character driven story as we learn Rocket Raccoon's origin story. We enjoyed this very much.
