I'm probably biased because the movie based on this book is in my top all time favorite cinematic achievements. I enjoyed seeing that nuggets of perfection were taken from the book word-for-word and used in the script. Obviously I already knew the story / plot twists so there wasn't much element of surprise for me while reading. The only thing that really put me off was that the writing style was very quick, short burst sentences. Totally works with the main character's overall disposition/station but as a reader I find that makes it difficult for me to get into the book. It jumps a lot, which again is character driven, but that too means I have trouble getting into the story. The writing style wasn't really for me (personal opinion) but I'm glad I made the decision to read the book from where the movie got its start.
