I do remember it being more confusing of a read and that's where the visual representation of the movie really does help. The book as you would expect, was more in-depth especially when it came to the whole gist of the plot and there's more closure with the book ending than in the film.
I guess while we're on the topic of Stanley Kubrick films, come to think of it, I was probably generous in giving Full Metal Jacket a perfect 10. IMO, Dr. Strangelove was his most complete film and is the only one I would feel comfortable in giving a 10/10. Paths of Glory is closer to 10 than Full Metal Jacket, after a second think, in fact.

When I was 13 or 14 my friend's family hosted a foreign exchange student from Ireland. Other than having an at-times-indiscernible accent, he didn't fit any of the Irish stereotypes that I had learned from movies, TV, and cereal boxes. His last name wasn't even Mc-something or O'anything. I think it was Smith. Anyway, he wasn't pasty and pale and redheaded, he had blue eyes and black hair and just about every girl in my middle school thought he was cute and loved his accent. Being one of his best friends at the school, this obviously paid great dividends for me. He left at the end of the school year and as far as I know, not even his host family ever heard from him again. This movie sucks worse than most sucky romantic-comedy chick-flicks.
