I read the book a while ago and thought it was fantastic. I just saw the movie and loved it just as much. Anyone else like them as much as me? and if you do, what's your favorite line?

definatly cool but a bit overrated
Happiness is the most insidious prison of all.

Overrated but still awesome.

It's a little overrated, but I saw it years after everyone stopped talking about it.

I saw it after everyone stopped talking about it. And that quote is great.

The novel's pretty great. Worth reading.
Thank you. Despite enjoying the movie I didn't look up anything which may have inspired it, and I didn't see the credits saying it was based on someone's novel - or I would have.

It's a graphic novel, as in comic book. One of very few that could be called a serious literary achievement. But let's call it what it is, because it's not just "a novel".

its a fantastic comic book, but i feel that grouping it like that doesn't express how amazingly written it is.

Call it a comic book or a graphic novel, that's fine, but calling it a novel is misleading. It suggests it's a standard prose novel with no pictures, which is not true and is in my opinion slightly insulting toward the hard work of the artist or artists. Alan Moore is responsible for some of the best work in the medium of comics, but let's not forget that he didn't do it alone.
