The book and the movie is good.  I read the book after I watched the movie.  I personally liked it, most of the time I prefer the book there is always so much different between the movie and the book.  I would rather sit down and read the book than watch the movie.  But that's me I love to read. 

But me yes I'd say it's worth it.

I loved the book, but IMO, the movie is head and shoulders better than the book.  Angelina Jolie and Brittany Murphy are spectactular.

This is one of my favorite movies!  It's also one of the very few times that I'll say the movie is much better than the book!  But!  I must say that the book was really worth reading too.
