The book usually IS better than the movie, but I find it hilarious that the logo for the group is "Forrest Gump."
"Forrest Gump" is one of the prime examples for me of cases where the book isn't better than the book. The book is a ginormous, ridiculous, big ball of fail, but the movie is absolutely charming. ;)
Still, for the most part, the book usually is better than the movie!
