I saw the Netflix series. I thought the first half was craptacular, but the second half veered into WTF, why the hell did they do that, why are they wasting these chasracters, I hate the way the female characters are portrayed, and so on.So, I checked the book out from the library. I think it might have been too soon. I started reading, then skimming. I thought that the character of Christina was at least more interesting and less wooden in the book, but otherwise, it was too similar and I was done.
