    I've seen the miniseries at least three times. Is this much different? Could I vote on it from that experience alone or would that be naughty of me?

    Love the movie and own the screenplay book, but have never bothered to read it, and probably never will (I just don't see the point).
    So we've gone from "of course we didn't do that!" to "...ok, we did, but it had a really cool name!"

    Well, since the book is actually the screenplay for the miniseries, then should be almost identical. I guess it wouldn't be any different then some one rating a book if they only listened to the audio book.
    (of course in this case you would be reading descriptions of the scenery rather then seeing it).

    I've never read it, but have also seen the mini-series a few times.

    I'm in the same boat. I love the miniseries. Seen it a bunch of times. I also have the book but have yet to read it. Maybe I'll glance through it when I get home to see if it's much different.

    Based on the emoticon Tommy put at the end of his post, I think he was joking.

    AFAIK, the book is an exact word-for-word screenplay of the miniseries.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    maybe the only book I would have given a 1 if I hadn't been late
    the reading was excruciating, when it was over I couldn't believe I had made it
