Wow - I've watched the movie a few times now and this book is brilliant. It really helps to bring it all together (I must admit I did get a bit confused with all the characters in the movie before - but definitely not now!) I would highly recommend reaading this book if you want to get the most out of the movie (which is fabulous too by the way)
