About halfway thru,liked the movie better,the characters in the book aren't as personable as the Warriors.

I just didn't like it...I think Walter Hill is a much better story teller, but you should take a look for your self. There are some people on here that like the book, but mostly everyone says that it is a lot different than the movie.

I bought the book a couple of years ago and only got to the second chapter, really struggled with it.

Reading another thread here, it seems the book gets alot better after a few chapters, I'm gonn agive it another go when I get a chance.
Who are The Warriors, there must be some word...

Maybe the post was translated from several different languages before into English.

Good catch. I deleted all of his posts (which were devoid of any real content). I'll keep watch for future garbage posts.

Kudos.
