Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom by James KahnThe time is 1935. Through a series of misadventures in Shanghai - and a narrow escape from death - Indiana Jones finds himself in a remote village in India. A mysterious shaman says his arrival has been foreseen and that Indy and his companions, Willie Scott and Short Round, are destined to save the villagers.
The prequel to Raiders - Jones is a different character here, more inclined towards “fortune and glory, kid, fortune and glory” than putting items in a museum - this is fast paced, occasionally broad, amusing and darker than you expect. Well constructed, even if some of the writing is fairly basic, this dwells longer on the mines and Temple of Doom itself (though never calls it that) than the film does but is all the better for it. Clearly written from the shooting script, the novelisation provides back stories for Short Round and Willie, explains how she got captured before her sacrifice scene and shows us how Shorty knew that fire would bring Indy back. An entertaining read (with wonderful last lines - “They did eventually all make it to America. But that is another story”) and the perfect accompaniment to the film, I thoroughly enjoyed this and would highly recommend it to fans of Dr Jones.

After arriving in North India , Indiana Jones is asked by desperate villagers to find a mystical stone and rescue their children from a Thuggee cult practicing child slavery , black magic and ritualistic human sacrifice in honor of the goddess Kali. Executive producer and co-writer George Lucas made the film a prequel as he did not want the Nazis to be the villains again. After three rejected plot devices , Lucas wrote a film treatment that resembled the film's final storyline. Lawrence Kasdan , Lucas' collaborator on Raiders of the Lost Ark , turned down the offer to write the script, and Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz were hired as his replacements, with the screenplay partly based upon the film Gunga Din. The film was released to financial success but initial reviews were mixed, criticizing its dark tone. However, critical opinion has improved since , citing the film's intensity and imagination.
