Excellent book!

I recommend watching the film then reading the book to see what they missed out.

Or the other way around, maybe. Can't say because you can really only do one or the other (unless you're able to wipe your own memory).

I watched the film after and they'd glossed over so much that it wasn't really enjoyable. Seemed rushed out, to catch the rock bio wave after Bohemian Rhapsody.

Ah. I tried the movie two times but both times just stopped watching about halfway through.

It blew me away the first time I saw it, I need to watch it again. The Soderbergh version isn't bad either, but avoid the '68 Russian TV version. Awful.

Truth to be told I sometimes have a hard time focusing and remembering what books are about. Figured a book like this could help. Now if my reading comprehension would let me down, this book wouldn't be of any use to begin with! :P
