If you watch this not long after reading the book, you will not like it. Hardly surprising as most TV/Film adaptions of books are inferior to the original written word. Not that this TV series/movie isn't true to King's novel. In fact, as much of the huge book that could be filmed is indeed shown on screen, and the teleplay/screenplay is by King himself. However, if you've read the book, no doubt it was a large part of your life for sometime (the book is extremely long), and seeing the characters on the screen etc. may seem cheesey. I read the book in 1995 and watched some of this not long after; and didn't like it. Recently I bought it on video and me and a couple of friends (Hi Jenny and Mags) spent 6 hours watching, almost 7 years after I read the book. I enjoyed it more. I still remembered the book, but not in detail, and this movie/TV show was enjoyable.
