The book is amazing. After Animal Farm it's the first book I actually read through. I heard the movie doesn't cover the whole story. It's probbaly worth watching, but read the book first dude.

I started watching it but was simply unable to watch the whole thing. But I agree with trendal in that it doesn't do the book justice.

Yeah, reading the book is always much better. I've never seen the movie and I doubt that I ever will. It would probably only piss me off.

I read the book in 48 hours, then rented the movie the next day. The movie sucked donkey-dick...plain and simple.

It was on last night, I only saw some of it. I was rolling so I didn't really feel like getting it to the story, its depressing.

Yeah I've only seen bits and peices of the movie, back in high school English class, but the parts I saw were all pretty shitty :smirk:
