I don't typically say this but... The movie was much better.

I first saw the movie in high school and loved it, but didn't really remember too much on it. I re-watched it last weekend (thanks to Netflix instant streaming!) and immediately remembered why I had enjoyed it the first time. I love movies or books where the ending makes you question everything you've been reading/watching. Upon finding out that this was a book first, I knew I had to read it right away.

I think this was well-written, but the characters weren't very fleshed out and the twist at the end didn't make sense the way it had in the movie. Maybe this was just way too short (it wasn't even 200 pages, whereas the movie was almost 2 hours long!)

All in all, I'm not sure I would have watched the movie had I read this first.
