Kay | 20 comments Just finished it - hated it, felt it needed a good editor and a good shake-up! Presumably this is one of those rarities where the film is SO much better. Will rent it and let you know!

Fiona (bookcoop) The book isn't as good as the movie - which is so much better. I didn't hate it, but I wasn't blown away by it.

Forest W as Amin was superb in the movie and really blew me away. I read the book after (perhaps the only way I could have enjoyed it) and it just fell flat.

Garrigan is a bit of a twerp and isn't a strong enough character to hold the book. Amin is few and far between. Garrigan is just to annoying to enjoy.

Stephanie I had this on my reading list. The movie was incredible. Maybe I will pass this one by.

Fiona (bookcoop) Aw, don't pass it by without taking a look at it. It wasn't THAT bad. But I don't think I'd have read it or enjoyed reading it (cos I did) had I not seen the movie.
