While I wasn't really disappointed with this, it really was more simplistic than I anticipated.
I suspect that rather than the more usual sequence of events, this wasn't a book first and then a movie, but rather, the reverse.
A movie is really more the equivalent of a novella. Turning a novel into a movie is always a problem of stuffing in as much as possible and then eliminating what you just positively CAN'T get in. Usually, when a movie is turned into a book, the author fills in a lot of the back story, plus a lot of subplots and other interesting stuff to make a whole book. This wasn't done in this case.
The story that is an excellent, action-filled movie makes for a very simplistic book. I enjoyed it anyway, but it could have been a much richer experience.
Take into account the book's target audience, forgive a few spelling errors, linger over the eight pages of movie stills, and you should be able to enjoy this novelization. Yes, there are a few discrepancies between it and the movie, but nothing that changes the story. I'ts a quick, easy read. If you liked the movie, you'll probably like the book.
It was definitely not a page-turner. There are about 8 pages of color pictures in the center of the book, but even the pictures didn't have much action. We were disappointed in the book.
