really liked it
bookshelves: french-lit
Read from March 25 to May 25, 2010

For me, this is one of the rare cases when I read the book after I saw the movie. My general opinion is that movies made after books are never as good as their books, and "Planet of the Apes" is not an exception. Although the movie was pretty good, it distorted very much the original narration of the novel. Basically it retained the main idea but added several elements not encountered in the novel. I believe that if it had kept the original line of the book it would have been a better movie.
My copy of this book is in Romanian.
