I saw this in the cinema today. First showing!
I had read the first book and was very impressed and i'd thought the film wouldn't have lived up to it.....but it did!
It still had the loveiness in it but there was a lot more action than in the book.
The film was sooo good and i'm definately going to preorder it.
Don't be put off if you've never read the book. My friend who saw it with me hadn't read the book but she enjoyed the film as much as me.
