Saturday I took my two sons – yes I can count them both even if one will not be offical for a few weeks – to see Watchmen. For quite some time in the aftermath of the viewing I thought to myself, “Odd. Weird.” I could not quite put it out of my mind though. So I pulled out my copy of the novel and began reading. More than half-way through I thought I would offer a quick note. I really like the novel if that is OK to say. So far the movie tracks fairly well with the novel. However, reading the novel it is far easier to pick up the layered story the flashbacks don’t quite communicate. Maybe more when I am done.
