The Prestige by Christopher Priest

After seeing the movie I was really curious about the book. Thankfully they changed enough of the story line, I didn't have to waste brain time thinking about the comparisons.

If I hadn't watched the movie, I would have been completely lost while reading the book, but since I knew the secret, I followed it a lot better. But I was dying of curiosity, for someone else to read it, and if it made sense to them.

I nagged my sister enough and she read it. She 'got' it fairly early on, which I found interesting.

I would recommend it; you cannot skim this one; you have to be on full alert, but I liked it.

I'm a big CB fan (hence the avatar) so when I read the news that The Prestige project was in planning, I quickly purchased the book. It's totally not what I was expecting. I enjoyed the book, but the end was a bit disappointing, IMO.

I'm a bit slow, but I did "get it."

the book is different and doesn't have quite the same feel, just to warn you. Still good, but not the same.
