I try to read the book before I see the movie if I can because when I see the movie first, I can't ever imagine the characters or settings looking like anything other than what the movie has already ingrained in my head.
So last week I read "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro, knowing that I would probably go see the movie (directed by Mark Romanek) very soon. The book, according to TIME magazine, is one of the best novels of the decade. I don't know...I didn't really get it. I thought it was a pretty contrived sci-fi concept mixed-up with some very straightforward prep-school melodrama.
I'm not sure I'll go see the movie anymore, but this poster is FANTASTIC.
