Because I enjoyed this book so much, I was thrilled to see it was being made into a movie earlier this year. I was excited to see Hollywood's take on the movie, even though I'm usually disappointed. But for this film, the author also wrote the screenplay and David Fincher (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - US Version) directed it, so there was a chance it would be good. The previews began a couple of months ago, and remembering how crazy the book is, I got almost giddy when I saw them.
With that being said, I'm glad I saw it. The story is cra-cra and that was done flawlessly in the movie. I wonder if I'll ever think a Hollywood movie based on a book is WONDERFUL. Probably not, but this one is probably the closest they've come.
