Film Tie-In Book Covers in General Book Discussions Posted December 26, 2009 · Report reply Okay, first attempt at using the multi-quote button, never been at any forum that has it, very handy. Angels and Demons was a terrible film, but almost infinitely better than the book... Haven't read the book, saw the film, didn't love it. A while back I started on The DaVinci Code though, to see if it was really "all that". Such a hype about a book that I couldn't get into. Didn't like the film that much, but the book, well think I got up to 100 pages. Boring, the style it was written in just got me thinking the author had a list of all the facts he wanted to shove into the book, losing all sight of the story-line. No Dan Brown books for me anymore, thanks. Lord of the Rings. I've tried to read it several times and could never get into it. Have read the Fellowship of the Ring. Struggled through it years ago, have all three books in Dutch but don't think I will ever finish them, might buy them again in English, as I often feel so much gets lost in (even the best) translation. These days my English is good enough for it. Loved the films though, they're amongst my favourite films. The Road is as good as the book. Haven't see the film. The trailer didn't excite me. The book.. well I adore post-apocalyptic books, but I just didn't see what was so special about this one. Very grim, and though I finished it, that was mainly because it wasn't a very lengthy book.It wasn't horrible, but can't say I enjoyed it very much.
