Honestly, I can't remember all that much about the movie itself other than it was bad. I guess the first third or so of each is pretty close, but there's no secret society after him, and he goes through a pretty major trauma that influences the second half of the book.
I'm reading Homicide: A year on the Killing Streets by David Simon - it's the factual book that the TV series The Wire was based on. It's a really interesting read actually, and you can pick out loads of the characters from the series real inspiration; a great read.
So, it's been a while since I read a series quite as good as the Monster Hunter one. Currently on the third, Monster Hunter Alpha. The way Larry Correia blends fantasy and horror with modern tech, dry humor, and massive battles is amazing. I strongly recommend this series to anyone who's ever had even a passing interest in zombies, vampires, or werewolves.
Oh, did I mention that Elves live in trailer parks, Gnomes imitate black gangsters, and Orks love heavy metal?
The Killing Moon by NK Jemisin--the first book in her Dreamsblood duo-logy. If its half as entrancing as her first trilogy (the Inheritance Cycle) it will cement her in my mind as one of the best epic fantasy writers out there.
Also finally getting around to finishing Infidel by Kameron Hurley as the third book comes out soonish.
