I was very disappointed with this movie, they almost completely changed the story and I feel that it's like they just took up the title of the book and smacked it on top of a totally different (and unappealing after reading the book, mind you) story.

This book is totally I-N-N-A-C-U-R-A-T-E from the book. Well if there were no books of it and the movie was the first one, then I would say its a great movie, but right not, thats not going to happen. If you have read the book, it does not make sense with the movie. A lot of things are changed which make the movie super innacurate. If you want to watch it, no ones stopping you but once you have seen it and read the book, you'll probably try to break the CD. And well its not THAT bad though, but I just hated how they changed everything! And also, where are some of the characters, there like not there and their facial appearences are different as they said from the book. I personally thought it was TERRIBLE.

If you liked the books at all, never watch this. It is so inaccurate, it will make you scream. Even if you did not read the book, it is still a terrible movie.
