Whose read the book and seen the movie?

I read it some time last year and just saw the movie last week. I actually think I like the movie better than the book, although the book had way more detail and they did leave a lot of things out in the movie. I found the book was a lot darker, too.

I read the book last year and I loved it. Tried to watch the movie couple of weeks ago, couldn't get past 40 min mark I was very disappointed.

I've only read the book. I'm debating on whether to see the movie. I thought the book was a bit confusing - just the back and forth. That I cannot imagine how the movie would be, even more confusing?

I've started reading the book but it's very dark. I have seen the movie in the last week and loved it. I'm debating on whether to continue with reading the book.

I've only read it. I enjoyed it, but I think I would have liked it more if there hadn't been so much hype about it. I want to see the movie but it's not real high on my list of priorities.

I didn't find it confusing at all. There was one part where I had to go back and watch again, but I blame SO for talking to me and making me miss what was said lol
