Night Watch

I’m currently reading Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko, a novel about a world in which supernatural folks called Others fight a never-ending battle between Light and Darkness.

Overall, it’s pretty cool. A few years ago Britt and I saw the movie of the same name on DVD somewhere and bought it for kicks. The movie was weird and kind of incomprehensible but still rather cool. At the time, I had decided to track down the book it was based on to see if it was less incomprehensible. It took me a few years but now I have.

Overall, the book is certainly more coherent than the movie. Peter, my boss, read the book before I loaned him the DVD and, wow, did he hate the movie. Personally, the movie is making a lot more sense as I get deeper into the book. I can appreciate the special effects of the movie, and I understand why they made the story changes in the moviel so it’s not such a big deal.
