just bought this movie- I know its an old one, but still a great one- and was wondering if anyone had read the book. I would like to read it but just wondered if it was as good as the movie. I know that books are usually better because the movies leave things out. I had seen this movie when it first came out and still can't believe the line up they came up with for the movie- lots of big names. Robert Deniro, Brad Pitt, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Patric (he was great in Lost Boys!), just lots of great actors. Anyway any comments on the book would be great. Let me know if its worth the buy.
