I would love to hear what you guys think of Greg Cox`s novel. I`m 128 pages in (right in the middle of the stock exchange chase). Here are some thoughts from the stuff i`ve read: 1) The guy driving the van to meet the CIA guys at the beginning is name Barsad and is Bane`s top guy. 2) There was a scene cut out where Bane`s thugs are talking to each other after they knock out Gordon and reference Bane by name, which explains how Gordon knows it. 3) Some of Bane`s fight scenes are different. Lots more neck crushing and blood thrown around. 4) Bruce does in fact get the leg brace from Fox, rather than seemingly out of nowhere like in the movie. 5) I got a bunch better sense of why Bruce jumped back into being Batman than in the movie. I know Bane explains that Bruce doesn`t fear death in the prison, but in the book we get to hear it from Bruce himself. It`s really clear that Bruce goes back out because of the possibility of death. 6) I also got a slightly better idea of the attraction Bruce has to Selina. During their first encounter, Bruce tells us that he sees some of himself in Selina; specifically how she has two sides to her like he has two sides to him.
