Oh great...

I've read the comments and started the book, totally disappointing. Maybe I'll just keep myself in the dark about the book. Ugh.

The musical is way different from the book. It is a lot more upbeat and funny. Everyone who I've talked to who has seen the musical said it's the best one they have seen. [You can go on youtube and watch parts from the original cast.] The book kind of made me mad because it had the potential to be a really good story and the bad stuff just ruined it. I always thought it would make an awesome movie (which I've read could be in the works) if they would leave all of the perverted nonsense out.

skip the book. It's too postmodern and the musical isn't based on it at all or at least not enough to make it worth it--they really changed the story for the better in the musical.

Yeah... I've heard that the book is a bit icky. Just enjoy the musical and pretend the book doesn't exist ;)

Lauren said...

I have the book on my booklist...mostly because I am curious to see what all the hype is about...

Lisa said...

My brother in law just read the book, he said he defiantly would NOT recommend it. Let us know what you think if you keep reading it.

I'm glad to know now that I don't want to read that book! I hope you have the best time EVER at the show! :)
