I don't know how it stands up to the book (I'm sure someone will tell me), but I thought he series was bloody great. Before every episode I made predictions as to what would happen, and I was almost always wrong. In a way I'm glad that I hadn't read the book because it allowed me to do that.
I shan't mention particular things that I liked because I can't seem to sus how to do a spoiler tag.

when you post, there is a smiley face in the box above. Then there is a landscape picture, them film clips and the 4th box, clik it. Check spoiler and whatever you want to write, put between those brackets.

The movie seemed true to the book's 'feeling', if not to specifics. As far as those go, the series diverged radically at certain points. If you get the chance, read the novel! It has enough differences that it will likely feel fresh, and enough similarities the you can settle in and enjoy without the 'getting to know you' period. :)

I watched it with a friend who hasn't read the book, it was fun listening to his predictions. I've got him reading the Dark Tower books, and he's making predictions, usually wrong, about that too. The series was great, but the book's better.
