I've always loved the old black-and-white movie and thought it would be fun to read the book. I was not disappointed. A bonus interview at the end of this audio recording proved very interesting, too, as it speaks to both the book and that original movie.
I have seen the first two movies but the book as usual was so much better and actually expains whats happening. I have listened to alot of books and I really liked this one. Don't miss it.
