Its a bit understandable that a plot that's mainly developed through recollections and testimonies could be a challenge to adapt into a screenplay and a film. Here though it seems that they re-formatted the book as a "im there in the action as its happening" story line, which makes it boring, overused and totally pointless.
The whole appeal of the book was in the way the story was presented, and I am sad to see that no one in Hollywood could have come up with a more creative solution.
