    I haven't read the book so I have no idea. Seems like a lot of characters for a movie.

    You should give them a read - the first one is better than the second and third, but yeah - its a fun read. The writing isn't all that great, but its readable...

    Well, I read them all. It's one of those things where I feel it's a pity it wasn't edited a few times, but since I read them I learned they literally went from fanfic forum posts into e-book then print, and that no editing was done. I am ambivalent about it because I like good structure. But there were enough interesting elements to warrant the time spent on them for me as a reader. More than anything, I respect EL James' ability to "speak" to so many people. It's a huge achievement. :)

    Make I ask you for your criteria?

    Do the actors named simply look like the descriptions in the book, or do they convey the psychological bent representing the actions of the book's characters? Perhaps both?

    For example, Daniel Day Lewis seems to be able to convey both aspects for "Lincoln," and he's a good actor.
