The interaction between the characters is somewhat interesting at times, but not enough to please.
Shinkai, as always, wrote a cliché script for the film, and in the novel it is the same thing, during history it is possible to notice a significant amount of errors in the plot, but it is useful in general.
The film is clearly the best way to consume this work, the excellent visuals and animation distract you from the decadent script.

I recommend it if you really loved the movie and want to have something to remember it even more, but if you are going to read it just to have a read more

”To be honest, I didn’t intend to write this novel. It may be rude to the readers for me to say something like that, but I though Your Name worked best as an animated film.”
- the afterword of Your Name novelization

If you ever wanted read a speeded up version of a movie script with the best aspect of the movie removed entirely, this is your chance. Truly – Kimi no na Wa works best as the movie, as by far the best parts of the movie are the animation and visuals. So much that it can distract the viewer from the weaker storyline.

This novelization of the movie is meant for the fans who just can't get enough of the your name lore.
It is almost the same as the movie. Note that I said almost, because depending on who you are you might find some little interesting details which you might have missed in the movie. Also there is not much more we can know about the characters with this book than what we already do. There is also a little bit more dialogue in the book than the movie. It is also written in a good way switching the narration back and forth between Taki and Mitsuha.
