Review:

Having seen the movie first, I already knew I would like the book. The differences between the book and the movie were interesting surprises. It is true in this case that the book is better than the movie. The story moves along at just the right pace, with just enough suspense to keep you turning the pages. There were some lulls where I found myself skimming through the history, and the unsub page that was repeated in every chapter began to bore me. Overall though, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it if someone asked me.
