Book versus Movie

The book was written by the same author who wrote the movie script. But where the movie is clearly aimed at being family entertainment, the book is not.

Aside from the more in-depth look at the main and minor characters which results in additional and longer scenes, not found in the book, some elements are more brutal and less suitable for younger audiences. Or to put it with ratings, had the book been made into a movie scene for scene, it would have been R or maybe even NC-17.

For now I just give a short list of changes/additions concerning Einon in particular, once I had time to read the book again, I'll go into greater detail.
