It was a good story, I didn't like the writing style. Too much detail in dull sections (random bits of self-analysis or philosophy) and not enough in the most interesting parts (the interaction between the narrator and Hanna, and the various turning points of the plot, which turned too abruptly, all the time.) I'd like to see the movie, I imagine they've probably done a great job of illustrating the absorbing narrative and removing the clunky writing bits.
