Well, I finally saw the film. It was alright... I certainly didn't like it as much as the book. It's very easy when you're reading the book to put yourself in Hermie's place but when watching the movie you just feel as though you're watching someone experience the most awkward, embarrassing moments of his life. It's not as enjoyable an experience. And the sweet moments from the book didn't seem as potent. I guess these are the usual complaints of someone who prefers a book to a movie.
