Novelisation of the Conan the Barbarian (2011) movie

After seeing the movie - a clear flop as a Conan movie, but a decent action flick in its own right - I wished to read the novelisation. I was perhaps driven to the novel by morbid curiosity, but I also wanted to see if it would fix at least some plot holes and failed characterisation that we saw in the movie. Stackpole was familiar to me from his previous Star Wars novels, so I hoped for more than I would have from a completely unknown name. The following may contain some spoilers to those who have not seen the movie yet.
