It's different from the HBO series, and significantly enough that I'd consider the two as separate entities. There are several points in the book that aren't present in the series and vice versa. Nonetheless, it was an interesting read. Artistically, I think I prefer the series, to a point. I'm glad I read this to sort of round things out with the other characters in the narrative.

Why, oh why did I wait so long to read this book!? The TV series prompted me to finally pick it up. But this is even better than the show. Great characters, great stories, fascinating (and infuriating) historical context. Read this book!
[Audiobook note: Listen to this book! Kevin Kenerly is a great narrator!]

I read it again while watching the series. The series is quite different, so don't worry if you watched it before reading.

So this book is like an action movie. Like part Kill Bill and part Men in Black and part Usual Suspects. It kind of lost me at the end, but I really liked it.

Here's the deal: this woman is locked up in a psych ward for being a crazy murderer. Then she starts to tell this story about how she works for a secret organization that fights evil. Because she fights evil, there are a lot of terrible characters in this book, child molesters mostly, which isn't fun to think about, but if you're going to fight evil, you're going to go up against scummy stuff.

And then there are all these twists. I won't spoil any of them, but rest assured that this book will keep you on your toes if you can keep up.
