I wanted to read it before I saw the trailer, but I really wanted to read it after the trailer. However, now I've shelved the idea (no pun intended) until a later date.
The trailer is very well done. The book, not so. How it got an award, I have no idea. And whoever gave or nominated it for an SF award should be prevented from having anything to do with book awards. This is not SF and it's not award worthy.
