Read full description of the books:
I listened to the audiobook, which was 8 hours, 50 minutes, and 20 seconds long and narrated by Christian Rummel. The story sounds more epic when you listen to the film's score throughout. The chronology described in this novelization is a bit off, but I am sure that I am one of few people who will notice. There are minor references to the events of the preceding novel, Firestorm, in which mercenaries were sent to hunt the apes in the Muir Woods, which was set on fire. More background on human characters is provided. Thought processes of various characters are revealed, such as Caesar reasoning whether or not killing Koba could be justified. His claim that Koba is not an ape makes more sense when he realizes that Koba, in his quest for power, has tried to take what makes humans powerful. When I watched the film, I had wished that Rocket had had a larger role and some sort of reaction to the death of his son Ash. Here, he tells Koba, "You kill my son!" This mirrors Battle for the Planet of the Apes, in which Caesar says to Aldo, "You killed my son!" The last conversation between Caesar and Malcolm is more powerful in the film; the novelization leaves out some dialogue that really made that scene beautiful. In the epilogue, a ship containing humans from the north who had been contacted via radio approaches San Francisco as Caesar and the apes stand on top of the tower at daybreak. Caesar wonders who will make the first move in this game of chess, a game that he has played both figuratively and literally since he was very young. This was probably meant to be the stinger of the film before being cut. I am eager to find out more info about the next installment as soon as I can.
