I've seen the film more than once, then found the book for less than $2.00 at a trash & treasure market.
I'm finding that so far the film script is almost true to the book, with the book having just a little bit more detail as you would expect.
Andy is reading this to the girls, I thought it's a bit too old for them yet but they seem to be enjoying the adventure, not to mention how much of a thrill he's getting out of it.
I'll have to read it next as it's been over 20 years since I last read it, plus the film will be coming out later in the year.
I'm reading this to the girls when I can get a chance (as The Hobbit has taken over). The story is exciting and a little scary but we're enjoying it.
