Different bad, for me at least. They changed so many little and not so little things about the storyline(s), the characters, relationships, settings and timelines. I feel like it is just another sci-fi hollywood series. The book is in a whole other league. But, as I said before and never seem to tire to repeat apparently, this is the way popular (as in, modern and part of the popular culture of 16 to 49 year olds) books are made into movies today. For examples, see The Dark Tower, Maze Runner, Hunger Games, and Ready Player One. Brilliant bit of pub quiz kind of knowledge with the Hendrix/Raven thing, though. Cheers!
