I liked the book more.
The girls that Alex picked up in the music store in the movie didn't even look like they were 10 years old.
True, the book is way more cool. However, I always reccomend the movie first in this case. the new language that needs to be learned is easier to pick up when seeing it in action. I have three friends that watched the movie then read the book. These three arent very good readers, yet figured it out petty well.
As for some discrepencies -- the girls were changed probably due to the law. Naked 10 y.o. girls I would imagine is not legal now, or 30 years ago.
