The Firm (by John Grisham)
The Firm is an excellent read, in my opinion. From the very start, I have been sucked into the story, plot, and characters. The pages fly by!
However, reading U-571 isn't such a walk in the park. I know I enjoyed watching the movie, but I should have known better than to think that the book -- based off a screenplay, yeuuuch -- would be as enjoyable, if not more. It's not... so far, anyway.
What I want to know is if you all think it's worth plugging through. Has anyone else read this adaptation? Has anyone else read a book written from its movie? Are they any good?
I always say that 'the book is better than the movie', but with this horrible experience I'm tempted to change that to 'the original is better than the transplant' :P
