Am finishing up the book and watched the movie tonight. Have loved this movie since the first time I saw it, but the greatness of the book makes the movie pale in comparison. This is common among film adaptations of books, but it's striking when a film your mind held up as amazing now seems only good.
I don't say any of this to disparage the film (I still enjoyed it quite a bit) but to point lovers of the film to the superiority of the book. If you haven't read it, you really should.
