Hmmm...I had this problem with Harry Potter -- Some of the characters
(most notably Snape)  looked an awful lot different than I imagined and
all of the setting looked different, and now some of settings have
overwritten my imagery (especially in instances where such imagery was
vague to begin with)  and I don't think I'll be able to get everything
back...Anyway, I've been forbidden to see the movie until I read the book,
and I've been ordered to go see the movie on Monday...so I'd better get
reading :-)
