I admittedly don't read as many books as I would like to so I picked up a copy of The Dark Crystal at a thrift store on a whim. I'd heard of the movie and have a lot of friends who like it, and figured it must have been based on this book. It wasn't until after I started reading it that I realized it was the other way around- book based on the movie, meh. I'm a chapter in so far, and struggling to really get pulled into the story/world, I think I may have a weak imagination and fantasy just isn't for me. I'm just gonna give it another chapter or two before I give up on it.
