I read the book and loved it, and the sequel. Too bad I don't get the Starz
channel. Perhaps this will be released on dvd one day and I'll watch it then.
I read the book, but found it poorly-written. Largely plot-driven, it is very
violent and the characters are two-dimensional. Even the heroes are hard to
like. The film will distill the story and will probably be better than the book.
It will be hard to capture the essence of such a huge story on film but I am
hopeful. If the film is only a part as good as the book, it will be wonderful
and you are recommended to read the novel.
Enjoyed the book. Looking forward to the mini-series.
