Saw the movie last night.
Overall, not a bad treatment of a difficult book. Very, very very abbreviated, but that was necessary. If you liked the movie, you'll love the book.
There was one thing that amazed me though. I thought that the ending of the book was pretty bad - the ending of the movie was even worse. It takes real talent to take the only bad part of the book and amplify it to make it even worse.
