They killed it. One of my favourite books, and they raped it. The casting of Will is crucial, and they casted an irritating little indentikit Yank movie-brat. It's horrible to watch. Avoid.

The previews looked terrible. They had me thinking, "Why would they make the main character so unlikeable?" Are the books really that good?

They're excellent. Less adult appeal than something like the Pullman trilogy, but great works of very British fantasy nonetheless.
