This story has everything. It is well written. True to the character, taking elements from some of the best Batman comics Kinghtfall, No Man's land, and Dark Knight Returns (the comic not the last movie). Not giving too much away the basic story is Gotham has had 8 years of peace with no need of the Batman or Bruce Wayne. Now this is coming to an end thanks to the arrival of Bane. Comic fans already know who he is, but his origins are slightly different in the book, and he might not even be the biggest threat. Bruce has to reinvent himself and rise from the ashes if he has a chance of beating Bane. Alfred sums it up when he tells Bruce that you are not Batman anymore, but he will need to be if Gotham has a hope of surviving. Excellent book. Even though it is 413 pages, they will fly by. Recommended to any Batman fan of the movies or comics. Cox and the Nolans to Batman justice.

Big fan of the Christopher Nolan Batman films and I was interested to see what parts of the story I may have missed or not fully understood in reading this movie novelisation. Enjoyable read overall, well written and helped fill in any gaps, flesh out characters and show a more in depth perspective on crucial parts of the story.

This is one of the best books I have ever read and is well worth the money. As many of the other reviews have mentioned, it gives a different perspective to the movie and sometimes in more detail. If you have not seen the film I would recommend seeing it first before reading the book, but it helps with understanding the film. It is a book well written and is worth every penny.

I've always read a lot of film and TV tie-in books, though sadly fewer seem to be published these days. I jumped up and down when I saw The Dark Knight Rises was getting a novelisation as I love Christopher Nolan's epic vision of Bruce Wayne and the Dark Knight. I read it all in a day and completely loved every page - it's one of the best I've read!

I'm not going to ramble on about the plot because I really don't want to spoil anything for any fans yet to see the film (it's excellent, by the way), but I will say that there are the odd few scenes that weren't included in the finished film and which do add something to the story. Reading this book is also a great opportunity to catch any of Bane's dialogue you might have missed on the big screen - I've seen it twice and, until I read this, there were still some bits I was unsure of!

Greg Cox is an understated legend when it comes to tie-in novels. His style and thorough approach always make them easy to read (check out his Underworld titles if you want further reading) and you can just tell he's passionate about his chosen subjects. He gets the characterisation 100% right in The Dark Knight Rises and it's great to have that extra insight and private thoughts that you never get with a film.

I highly recommend this official novelisation to fans of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, or anyone just looking for a fantastic superhero read. Short chapters means you'll fly through it and at the end you'll wish there was more. I certainly did and I'm quite sad this trilogy has come to a close. It's the best of the three, in my opinion, and because of that I have no doubt I'll be reading this book again somewhere down the line. Brilliant!

How did I rate The Dark Knight Rises? The same as most. I thought it was an excellent film and the ideal way to finish Christopher Nolan's epic Batman trilogy. Featuring award-winning performances from the likes of Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman & Joseph Gordon-Levitt - plus the deep, hard-hitting emotional story to resolve everything Batman Begins and The Dark Knight had established - The Dark Knight Rises ended the saga with the conclusion the films richly deserved, making Nolan's trilogy not only the greatest superhero film trilogy of all time, but one of the best film trilogies in the entire history of cinema.

Now as we all know...once a major blockbuster comes along and takes the world by storm - as The Dark Knight Rises did - tie-in merchandise is inevitable and natural to satiate fans until the movie comes out on home video. And a prime example of tie-in merchandise are novelizations of films.

This has always been a problematic marketing ploy. I mean, if you've already seen the film, why would you want to read a book that recaps the whole story word-for-word? If you HAVEN'T seen the film...why would you pay to read spoilers? It's something of a redundant scheme to make money.

So here I was opting to check out Greg Cox's novelization of The Dark Knight Rises. Probably because I was so itching to familiarize myself with the story again that I purchased the novel to satisfy myself until the film came out on DVD. It's a decision I've had absolutely no regrets about!

The story itself we have to thank Christopher Nolan for (along with Jonathan Nolan & David S. Goyer for co-writing the screenplay & story respectively). Like the plots in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, the third film has many twists and turns.

This is an easy book to read for fans of TDKR - the fantastic blockbuster of July 2012. It is essentially the movie on the page with scenes written large on the screen well described by Greg Cox. A few little nuggets are here for the avid fan to spot.
