There's a couple of great tidbits of information that were not in the movie. A few scenes are written differently than they were filmed. It's a perfectly reasonable use of $6.

I like the movie. but this is just poor novelization. ( )

I'm rating this a 4 out of 5 as it does a good job of capturing the plot lines of the film and clarified a few points for me that I missed while watching it. A few times there was the sense that perhaps the novelization was based on a early script rather than the finished film as some touches were missing. I'm not talking about anything major, I mean little things like the scene with the orphan boy drawing bat symbols with chalk that was in the trailer and in the final film but is not mentioned in the novelization. It was interesting to read in writer Greg Cox's afterward that he was away from home in Burbank during the writing which makes you picture him securely locked in a room from which the script cannot be removed in order to protect plot security.

Book description
EVERY HERO HAS A JOURNEY...
EVERY JOURNEY HAS AN END...

Eight years have passed since Batman was last seen in Gotham City. Bruce Wayne's alter ego is hunted by the law, and nothing--it seems--can bring him back. Not even a brazen theft committed by the enigmatic and seductive cat burglar Selina Kyle--inside the walls of Wayne Manor itself.

But then a deadly new threat appears, as if out of nowhere. Bane. Huge, powerful, and terrifyingly methodical, Bane is bent on spreading chaos and death. Commissioner Gordon and the GCPD are unable to stop him and have nowhere to turn. But after so many years, can the Dark Knight once again save Gotham from its gravest threat yet?
