I'd already read the book when I saw the movie, and it was an odd
experience: I kept thinking I ought to be upset by all the changes
they'd made, but I wasn't, because it was a good film, well-made, and
I could see why they'd made the changes they did.

But I still prefer the book. For one thing, it's got David Webb in it.
