I finished the novel this morning and I thought this was the perfect time to watch the film - as I like to see the differences. As is often the case, the film was not a patch on the book. I felt that the book was so much more complete, and by comparison the film was confused and skipped so much of what made the book so engaging. Overall it was not the age of the material that detracted from this story, but more the lack of depth. Without knowing the story, so much of what happens in the film would have seemed confusing, the plot just seemed to jump from one part of the story to another without any explanation.
