Dont watch the film until you've read the book!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Requiem for a Dream (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
After watching the film, I ordered this book (because the books are always better than the film, and the film is brilliant).
I was new to Selby Jr but I'm now working my way through all of his books - I loved every one so far. This and The Demon are my top two as of yet.
However I feel like some of this novel was lost on me as I had already seen the film and therefore knew the plot :(
I wish I couldve read the book before the film, but then I may never have come across such a fantastic author...
If you get the chance, definitely read this before seeing the film!!!
