I finally finished reading the book after months of slowly going through the pages. Most probably after watching the same story on screen, I was not that excited to know how the plot would conclude. Click HERE to read the synopsis of the novel. In comparison to the movie, surprisingly, I found the novel to be more graphic and gory whereas the film was more colourful with enhanced computer images and effects. They are both beautiful, nonetheless. I need to watch the movie again on DVD.
