We all know the movie (a personal favourite of mine) but what did you think of the book? I thought it was poorly written in some areas, but certainly the last 100 pages or so were very entertaining. It was interesting to see how the movie cut many of the main characters completely. For example, I think Henry Wu had only one line in the movie, while Ed Regis was cut completely, and even Donald Gennaro featured only briefly. And while we're on the book what did everyone think of the movie?
