About one year ago I bought the book “Gomorra” before a long-haul flight and I read it with pleasure. Currently I am reading it the third time (not only because its one of the few German books that I have here in Japan) and I am still enjoying it. Recently, I had also the chance to see the movie which originates from the book. Although, not bad, the book is clearly better. The award winning film tries to be close to the book, but sometimes drifts off too much. Thus for those who want to get the story in two hours, the film is surely a must, but if you have time, I strongly recommend the book.
