I really enjoyed the book, hard to put down! I finished it in just a few days, and even though the subject matter has some distasteful elements (corruption, undermining the legal system, manipulation of innocent people) it was very well written and really interesting. The movie was great, which prompted me to read the book, and the book definitely provided a level of detail, background and sophistication that wasn't possible in a movie. I definitely recommend this, whether or not you see the movie.
