This really made me interested in... the book. Is it any good?

Sounded cool back when it was announced, apparently a (none too wise) team is sent into a zone where nothing has come out alive.

finally caught this over the weekend. i thought it was really great. very 2001-esque, thematically. sound design was spectacular. no idea on the trilogy of books.

I loved it too, saw it twice in the theater and bought it when it came out. It is clear that Garland read the book, liked a few elements but scrapped most of it and made his own thing--which I'm glad for, I think the film's quite a bit better than the first book (apparently Garland only read the first one, which is the route I'm going too). One of Portman's better performances, and the evolution both literally and figuratively between her and Isaac is really cool.
