Well, the books are more oriented toward females.
There's always powerful female lead characters, and the males are usually cruel or weak.
I read the book a couple years ago for school, and I actually didn't think it was that bad. I'll probably wait to see this in the dollar theater though, because I'm sure it will be nothing like the book, like most movies.
