Only rarely can a novelisation bring something extra to the game. It happens that the book is based on an initial script, rather than on the finished film. And sometimes, out of frustration I assume, will the writer work in details and clues that the film neglected to convey. In those rare instances do I find a novelisation weakly amusing, if not worth the price and consumption of my time.
As for Bond, I have read two novelisations, GE and TWINE, and thought them decent but little else. I doubt the Craigs lend themselves well to novelisations, although I'm not without a bit of curiosity. Who knows, some of the "unexplained" bits in SF for example could, in the hands of a seasoned novelist, end up clarified. But even then, they wouldn't become canon just like that. So I'm neither asking for novelisations nor am I against them.
Excited to read this!
