  •  It is much richer... (9+ / 0-)

    I've not seen the movie but yes, I always read books before seeing the movie.  It feels in so much more than what Hollywood captures.

    •  I just got my copy in the afternoon mail. (4+ / 0-)

      I had not heard of either the book or the movie til I saw it
      see-ing it discussed here.
      I would rather read the book,then see the movie-I have always found it so much more textured.
      I also think all the discusions I have read here,of this book will enrich my reading of it.

        on the texture in the book.  I'm withholding final judgement until I'm finished reading it.  We can compare notes when you are done!  :)

        You might beat me because I only read on my commute!

          A friend is coming over to watch a movie she has'nt seen yet,but I have,so I shall start it then.
          I hope I have enough sense to put it down and go to sleep when I start getting cross-eyed!
