characters King Kong summary King Kong 109 summary ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Delos W. Lovelace Introduction by Greg BearPreface by Mark Cotta VazThe giant prehistoric gorilla King Kong is one of the most recognized images in our culture So great is the mighty Kong’s hold on the popular imagination that his story–a gripping yarn of man versus nature coupled with a fantastical update of the Beauty and the Beast legend–has been thrice made into a motion pictu. The 1933 film is pretty cheesy but I liked the story well enough Entertaining plotline enough action and a bittersweet ending made for a great light weekend read and I ended up sympathising a lot with the poor gorilla in the end
