I've got the book somewhere, if I can just find it. Actually I read the book before
I saw the movie and I have to tell you the movie is MUCH better, it ignored the
stupid stuff in the book, pulled no punches, and went directly to the heart of the matter.
It's by far the best book adaptation I've ever seen. It was brilliant at the very end
when our hero says "never" but then you see the machine analyzing him from every
direction and you know that never is not going to last very long.
I wish it were on DVD.
