Who here is planning on buying the novelization of TDK?

Discussion in 'The Dark Knight' started by General Vulcun, Jan 9, 2008.

?

Will you buy the TDK novel?

  1. I'll be reading it before the film comes out.

  2. I'll see TDK first, and then read the novel.

  3. The movie's good enough for me.

    I definitely am. I know the movie comes out 17 days after the novel, but honestly, I can't even wait that long once the story's been released to the public.

    I haven't read it, but I'm planning on soon. I hear O'Neil did a great job.

    The novelization = no.

    The Shooting Script? = Yeeooo.

    But not till after I see the movie 4 times (Midnight showing + 3 times opening day)

    Saturday = once, maybe twice.
    Sunday = once.

    so possibly 9 times opening weekend, we'll see if I have time to pick it up that weekend.

    I wasn't too impressed by the first movie's novelization. So I might skim it at the grocery store, and if it reads good, I'll get it.

    O'Neil may be a good comicbook writer, but the Begins novelization confirmed to me that he cannot write a novel. I found his prose surprisingly uninspired and repetitive. Which is disappointing, considering how great the expanded scenes are.

    I probably won't bother with this next novelization.

    Unlike movies novelisations should give us that vital inner monolouge of Batman, i loved that in the B89 one. i think ill give BB one a go actually.

    I'll read it.
    Hopefully, they won't do what they did in the BB novel, where Ra's actually is immortal... He makes several references to the Lazarus Pits.

    I think I'll stick with the movie and if I need to read something like TDK, I'll just go with The Dark Knight Returns.

    I just read the bit of the book available on Amazon. I don't think the immortal part of Ra was bad... he was immortal in TAS too. And the part about him not being able to have a male child certainly adds depth to the relationship between him and Bruce.

    If in the BB movie they would have made a greater father/son relationship in the story between Ra and Bruce, I think it would have helped the story. That way we could really feel Bruces conflict at having to destroy Ra, it would be like getting a second chance to have a father figure and then killing him. Also for Ra it would add depth to his character and his motivations for wanting to train Bruce and taking his rejection so personally.

    I'm sure I'll pick up the Novelization. And probably before the film hits. Though I think I'll wait on reading it until after I see the flick itself.

    Unlike a few years ago with SR.

    I bought the BB novel which I haven't finished yet, too many words to read.
