Wild74- I was kind of in your boat- I so loved the book! I have the audio book to listen with hubby on our next long car ride- Once he finds out Mark Hamil reads a chapter, he is so in (My guess Henry Rollins does Yonkers?)
So, I did some back ground checking. I guess this is suppose to be a franchise, and they want to make 2 more movies. From what I could gather, a lot of the parts the book lovers like me loved (like Yonkers) may be in the sequel. Which would be awesome. If they incorporate the book into the sequel, I would be a little happier. I just don't want all of those great ideas never to hit the screen.
And, I will totally back BPU on this, it is nothing like the book- so when things do happen, I didn't see it coming (kind of like non-readers and game of thrones). And, it had an interesting couple ideas that weren't in the book. So, it might be worth a peek if you go in kind of thinking of the book as ideas to come later.
