To be honest I haven't read it all yet, but this review is based on what my son has reported to me. I've only looked it over and read maybe 15%, but my 8 year old son read the whole novel and really liked it. He finished off in I think about 4-5 days (though he reads above grade, so it'll depend on the age of the child reading it).
Of course plenty of parents will probably read it to their kids at bed-time and I'm sure it would flow very well spoken out loud. Assuming that parent has seen the movie too (which they should because it's excellent!), it the dialogue is pretty much verbatim from the film, so it's almost like reading a script. This would be a weak point as far as it being a stand-alone novel in that the descriptions on occasion seem kind of thin. But this is not in all cases, because in other scenes the action and environments are actually pretty well fleshed out. In the end, the movie version has SO many things going on and so many delightful visual treats, a novel can't help but be a lot "less" than what you saw on screen.
I'd personally have liked to have the images sprinkled throughout the novel than at the end to better set the scenes/tone, but my son didn't seem to mind that they came in after the end in a kind of "best moments" section.
