I admit that I got this book because of the movie. I figured the book is almost always better than the movie and that there are multiple places in the movie where plot points or details were truthfully unnecessary for the movie but hinted at greater development in the book.
So with high hopes I began this book. However, after 2.5 hours it was still exposition and no action! After nearly 3 hours (1/3 of the book) I had had enough.
I have read more than my fair share of show paced books but this one is the first one that I just gave up on. None of the characters are engaging enough to keep the reader's interest and reward his/her patience.
In looking at other people's review's I'd like to believe that at some point something interesting happens, I however just don't care enough to suffer through anymore whiny grass is always greener characterization.
