Not bad, not great
This is a rare case where the book is not better than the film. If you enjoyed the film (which I did), you might still like the book, but be warned that the book is quite different in a couple of major ways. It's a very slow moving story (in the book), and it doesn't help in this case that the narrator reads it at a slow, deliberate pace. It's a matter of taste, I know, but I did not care for the narrator of this title. Some of the voices he affected for a few characters were downright annoying. Fortunately, he does not adopt such voices for any of the primary characters. Not a waste of time, but not as good as I had hoped, based on the movie.
