Since I haven't seen the film yet, I have no idea if the novelization follows closely to it. Most of the time, films can have reshoots and last minute changes that differ from the screenplays, which the novelizations are based on. For this book, author did a great job creating detailed descriptions, which made the story feel less of a "novelization" and more like a full-fledged horror novel.
Overall, I loved reading the Halloween: The Official Movie Novelization. If the book follows closely to the screenplay, then I would say it's one of the better sequels in the series.
I found myself thinking (more than once) that there is a bit too much "filler". Whereas the film was a tight, fluid story that never seemed to run out of steam, the novelization (at nearly 400 pages) had numerous spots where things came to a crawl. It also seems like way too much time was spent focusing on the teen characters. More time could (should) have been spent showing the catharsis experienced by Judy Greer's character (who suffers from the same lack of development in the film as well). However, that is a minor bone of contention and the book, overall, is a nice read ... just don't expect anything spectacular.
One little tidbit he did address (which wasn't in the movie) is what became of the Myers house. I won't spoil it here in this review but it was a nice touch.
I read as much as possible and across many genres.
Halloween, has always held my attention/interest, since the original story.
Has it ended?
Is Michael really dead this time?
We have thought he was one more than a few occasions.
Which begs the questions: Do we actually want him to be finished?
Do we want the "Halloween" stories to come to an end?
Laurie may be finished, but is her Granddaughter...
And, what about Michael? No one ever saw beyond what they wanted
