Ends up suffering from the classic diseases of book-to-film adaptation: triteness, overreliance of narration, and a general "need" to impose classic dramatic structure on what is not a particularly dramatic narrative.
It's as if the book itself has been locked up and institutionalized, forced to conform to a system that all but obliterates its own unique personality.
