A good read, but the movie "Limitless" is better...,
This review is from: The Dark Fields (Hardcover)
This is an excellent first novel -- a gripping and unpredictable plot, interesting characters and so on. I was lucky to gain an early preview of the new movie "Limitless" and I was blown away by it.
I then read the book, so it could be the order in which I did it, but I found the movie to a noticeable improvement on the book.
Better storyline (well-crafted by Leslie Dixon), more fleshed-out characters (de Niro!) and a far better ending (which they apparently changed during re-shoots anyway).
But I did enjoy reading the book immensely, so I do recommend it.
