Well, I knew they’d have to modernize it, and pick up the pace and some loose-ends (I think many of my favorite books would never be published if they were written this century), but still I was disappointed.
Just a little, maybe, like when you take a bite out of something and find it’s hollow. It doesn’t taste bad, it really is fine for what it is, but it’s less substantial than I’d expected.

There were so many thumbs-up and thumbs-down it kind-of came out as neutral.
Only fair to say *Spoiler Warning* and break here, but I hope you come back when you’ve seen the movie and tell me what you thought.
