    I don't recall my opinion of the book, but I don't think I especially disliked it.

    Yup. I wish they hadn't become worldwide known superstars, but the books are still decent. I'm almost done reading Nevermore :)

    In my opinion, sometimes the book is better and sometimes the movie is. It all depends. Normally what you see or read first is the one you will like better just because that was your first impression. Not always though. Like i saw the first 3 Love comes softly movies, but after I read that series I hated the movies and how much they changed it. Sometimes they are both good and you almost consider them as two completely different stories, for me that was Ella Enchanted they were so different they were both good. sometimes the movie is better than the book, Swiss family robinson. Grew up watching the movie so the book was almost a shock because Roberta and Fritz didn't fall in love(from what i can remember). The best book/movie is Lord of the Rings. they did amazing on the movie and kept it fairly close to the book.
