This is one of those cases where the book was written for the movie, but the author added some much needed bridges during some areas where the movie either didn't have time to explain, or just didn't want to. I read this book before episode III came out and it's a good companion to the movie. really fast read, but I recommend reading Labryinth of Evil before reading Revenge of the Sith.
I am a big fan of movie novelizations, and this one is no exception. As frequently happens, the author not only added some much needed bridges and explanations, but also offered a bit of insight into what several of the key characters were thinking. It is a really fast read, and I STRONGLY recommend reading this book as part of a "trilogy-read" with 'Labryinth of Evil' and 'Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader'.
The book was good, just not what I expected. As expected the novel had more detail than the movie. What I didn't expect, is that the book deals more about what Anakin is thinking and feeling. I was hoping for more detail about what happened to the other Jedi shown in the movie, but they were hardly even mentioned.
