Better as a film
on 27 May 2009
It was just OK. The idea behind the story was a good one, and one I felt would translate much better to film than print. It was confusing at times, which I guess was the authors intent, but when you have to re-read passages to get a sense of who people are and what is going on, it tends to make you lose interest.
There is a lot of dialogue in the book, and the narrative is carried forward mainly through the interaction of the characters. This is one of the reasons I feel it would be better seen in film. It did feel like reading a screen play (minus the stage directions).
The ending was interesting (won't spoil it!) but again, the lack of description and prose in general detracted from the events for me.
