I haven’t seen the movie, because I read the book in 2011. I’ll not see the movie because I don’t have the time, and because movies tend to pale in comparison to the book. I don’t need to cite examples, we all know about mish-mash adaptations. Besides, cramming a 690-page book into a 106-minute movie has to leave something on the table. And the book was phenomenal. A chilling tale that I’m not ashamed to admit brought me to tears.
Anyway, the film has a limited running in Arizona, Nevada, California, and Texas. Spend the $9 to see the movie, and then another $9 to get the kindle version.
