When I was a child, almost all movies had a novelization. Why? Most likely because Hollywood wanted to make more money and much like a McDonald’s Happy Meal toy, this was one more worthless item to shill to kids or fans of popular novels.
What can be added to a book that is over 50 years old? What new insight, Easter eggs, subtext or discussion could matter? Very little, I would presume, so I’m just going to go over the book and give my opinion on what I took away and if it is worth the time to read.
