I saw this movie first and decided to read the book...hoping for some more character development and back story for the characters. I was disappointed. There are very few differences between the book and movie. There are some small plot changes, but nothing that alters the overall story or ending.
If it's possible, I think there was more character development in the movie...and that's not good in my opinion. I liked Everett Hitch and I liked that the story was told from his perspective. I wish I had more insight into why the characters made the decisions they did. I was frustrated at times and I think if I knew more about the characters I would have better understood their logic.
At this point I'm not sure if I will continue with the series. Other readers have positive things to say about Parker's books so maybe I'll give them a chance.
