This book will haunt my nightmares but it was absolutely worth it. I've always loved the movie and figured it was about time to finally read the book. Take everything from the movie and dial it up several notches, the brutality and the satirical ramblings about furniture and suits. It's not a book for everyone, and it's difficult to say that it was enjoyable due to all the graphic violence and rats, but it was.
