Haven't read the book - yet. Haven't seen the movie - yet.
Brought the first book for my pregnant wife. She is halfway thru it and loves it already. We plan to watch the movie only after we are done with the book.
Come to think of it - what would the Harry Potter lovers suggest? See the movie and then read the book? Or read the book and then see the movie?

Sorry, I actually wanted to add to the Harry Potter post. :O Instead, ended up creating a new posting. However, the question I guess is still valid :-)

See the movie first, then read the book. If you do it the other way, the movie will be disappointing.

nope disagree. I've read all the books and wasn't at all dissappointed in the movie. yes of course not all of the sub-plots of the book are there but if they were the movie would have been 10 hours long. Apparently the first cut was 4 hours long and they released it 2.5 hours long. That's a long film, but they do well to keep you completely enthralled throughout.
However, I would recommend some time between finishing the book and watching the film, otherwise you'll never really appreciate the characters that you have formed in your own mind, cos you'll only see the ones in the film.

Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.
