Not sure I like the visual style with what I remember of the book. I always figured it should be aggressively beautiful rather than Tim Burton creepy gothic. Considering the obsession with youth and beauty found in the book, I find it hard to believe the characters would live in that environment.
But I never did finish it, feel free to disagree.
I agree, the visual style is HORRIBLY wrong. But it's the dark blue tinted thing that everyone so apparently loves these days, so every fucking movie has it. Even the poster looks like Twilight. Well, I better not jump to conclusions, it might be a good movie even if I hate the visuals.
