Overall I thought the book was a fun read, humorous and creative. I don’t know if I would have enjoyed it as much if I didn’t see the movies, and pop-culture cloud around them
I saw this wonderful infographic on http://visual.ly/who-taller-character-or-actor-who-played-them and thought it was very cool. While I’m not a big fan of fantasy books, I am a big fan of the movies. I tried to read fantasy books, I simply don’t “get” them (I tried to read Lord of the Rings about 4 times the past two decades, never reaching beyond page 150) even though I might give the genre another shot since, it seems, my taste is change.
