okay, i have to be honest here; i watch the movie first so the entire book is like an open spoiler to me. i know the storyline, i can imagine what Nick Naylor and other characters exactly looked like... and after reading the entire book; i like the movie more

i have to admit that it's hard to have a non-biased opinion towards the book. of course, the satirical way of portraying The Big Tobacco is hilarious, but i feel like the movie were exceeding the 'hilarious-form' while the book is 'just hilarious'. The book is also fast-paced, which i liked, but the characters were seemed to shabby and not well explored.

The way Nick handles the 'anti-tobacco-group' were awesome and also how he handles his own personal life. if you're looking for satirical point of view, and hilarious black humor, this book is the one for you
