I've not seen the film but would be interested in downloading the book. I LOVE dystopian novels and government corruption/inequality type themes. Can anyone advise whether this book is any good? (Subjective, I know!)

I loved it. The writing is beautiful, the story is chilling.

I never knew it was a book, it is one of my favourite movies

The book is a billion times better than the movie. Really, really good.

In fact it's one of the reasons I decided to have children!

Brilliant book. Seriously gets under the skin. I would thoroughly recommend it.

At risk of being contentious, I actually thought the movie was better than the book! It doesn't happen often, but in this case I liked the atmosphere much more
