I've heard good things about the book, but heard for a while that the movie wasn't nearly as great. I checked out the movie and enjoyed it. I still haven't read the book though lol. I need to do that... :doh:

I watched the film first and didn't like it. I ignored the book for a while because the movie killed my interest for it. However, I find that the book is actually entertaining, and way better than the film.

I watched the movie and thought it was better than the story. I found the story a little bit over-descriptive and boring in some parts. Some parts gave me a grand headache but not the movie. It was wonderful and I deeply commend the actors for making it come alive

The book by far was so much better than the movie. The movie just didn't hit the mark that the book did. As always the book is better than film but nonetheless it was cool to see the book-to-film adaptation.
