Read the book before you see the movie. They're both good, but the book, as usual, is better. A satirical look at suburbia.

An addicting read, I couldn't put it down. It's really a good writer who can take an entire cast of unlikeable, self-absorbed, seriously flawed, sociopathic, destructive, utterly despicable people and somehow get you to become drawn into their personal stories. What a bunch of losers this book details, yet the details and the stories are amazingly absorbing, believable, weird and scandalous. The "Little Children" are nothing to the main characters other than obstacles, excuses, pawns, and victims. You'll hate nearly every adult character in the book (or maybe all of them), yet you can't wait to find out what they do next. Icky and infuriating but a great read, I recommend it.

The book was pretty good the movie sucks. So if you saw the movie get the book it is much better. Not to ruin it but even the ending is different the movie...I liked the book, didn't LOVE it but I enjoyed the book and it was a fast read for me. Some moments were a little slow but over all i would suggest it.

A wonderful setup with a really frustrating and not-quite believable ending.
