This novelization is spot-on to the movie, with the added benefit of getting the extended cut not shown in theaters. However, you have to deal with orcs that come from all corners of Europe, where Blackhand is Scottish, Garona is Russian, etc., and a few notable names are pronounced differently from the movie. One particular problem I had, and can imagine others having, is how the narrator pronounces King Llane's name as, what sounds to me, like "Clane" or "Jane" at almost every point his name comes up.
All aside, I loved the movie enough to spend a credit on this, and I'm starting my second listen immediately.

Overall the story of the book is great. The way it was written is a bit fast paced for a book but wasn't bad. One thing to mention is that the book jumps from character to character very fast so be sure you listen closely.

Title. Not sure what I was expecting. Helped me power wash the garden, can't complain.

Positively loved this reading, enjoyed from start to finish with minor faults. I wasn't sure whether I've been pronouncing certain names wrong this entire time or not but I felt like I was entirely tugged out of the universe and immersion everytime I heard Scott mispronounce a name I knew from lore, while this is only a minor gripe it did have some effect on my listening experience. Other than that, his portrayal of characters was sincere and well placed and I felt right amongst the action throughout the story. The book stayed true to the film it was adapted from while still adding details you wouldn't have had watching it's silver screen counterpart. if you're a Warcraft fan this doesn't quite stick to the lore established in the games but that's not an issue that can be laid at the feet of this book's.
great story need to see the movie now that I understand the premise and scope
Hope the movie lives up to the book. Makes me want to go play some Warcraft 3
