I thought I'd better read the book before I watch the movie, and I was glad I did. A quick and enjoyable read. If you spent a day in bed cause its horrible outside or you're sick... Then you would probably easily finish this in one day.
The beginning was kinda slow because the main character didn't know nothing and was just asking questions.. and not getting any answers. But once things started getting "weird" in the book.. That's when it picked up speed, and become an enjoyable nearly "edge of your seat" entertaining. A few times, I knew what was going to happen... Kind of... Predictable.
Seeing all the "not so good" reviews about the second book, I'm not going to rush into it. Maybe if I stumble upon it, I'll get it but I'm not that keen to order one straight away. But I do plan on finishing the trilogy!
I was also thinking, that I could leave the book there and be content with it?
I'm looking forward to seeing the movie, I've been told that it's slightly different, but what movie made from books isn't?
I'd give this 3.5 to 4 stars, recommend to anyone that likes a quick read.
