Does the movie spoil the book?

    Funnily enough, Christine made me a King fan. It has a special place in my heart for that reason! But I reread it last year, and... blah. Just didn’t enjoy it. Way overwritten IMO. The movie streamlines the story pretty well I’d say.

    It's almost as if you're promoting illiteracy! :a24:

    I would read the book before seeing the movie, however I enjoyed the movie quite a bit.

    This is what is shown in the movie - I'd have to go check my copy of the book for any sex (I cannot recall any).

    I do wish the movie had all the deaths the book does. The book is much gorier, and the body count is higher.

    No movie has ever spoiled a book. Read the book. Watch the movie. You'll enjoy both.

    Thanks for all the replies! I'm pretty sure I'm at least gonna try the book. I'm very sure I'll like it because this book really sounds like it's right up my alley. If I just can't continue reading it (which I doubt will happen), I'll put it away for later and watch the movie. Thanks again, guys.

    Stephen King also recommends audio books, so maybe you could try that option!
