Normally I usually prefer the original adaption over another. This one unfortunately fell below my expectations because they omitted major keys points to the story which made it a bit boring to me. If you are unaware of the original book then this might easily be overlooked. I have to say that the American version of this is somewhat better because they included key information to the story that no one could possibly figure out without having read the book.
