I liked the plot, the way the scenery was described, the description of the characters.
The main thing to remember is that however much you might have liked the film, reading the book will be a different experience and you'll need to accept that going in.
Raymond Chandler's first novel, The Big Sleep, is the best mystery/crime novel I've ever read and even one of the best novels I've ever read.

I love the movie too. Read more
