I got this shortly after watching the film since i liked the film so much. I got it on my kindle. I knew since i had read other movie novelizations that it would be the same as the film which is what i wanted. However upon reading it i found that it exactly like the film, know i know it sounds a contraction but ill explain what i mean. In the film a particulate action sequences takes place with all the thrills and the drama, so when u come to the book u expect the same. However in the book a scene in the moive which is 20 seconds long is explained in about 8 words and it dosent have all the excitement which u expect it to build up in you. That pretty much sums up the novel, it just copies the film exactly, not taking into account the how changing the format from film to book would effect things. All it really needed, was a few extra lines hear and their to build up excitement to help the flow of the story. It also would have been nice if their had been some detailed descriptions of the landscapes in the book, such as tooths castle since you are imagining what your are seeing in your head you need a bit more descriptions than is needed in the film.
