Disappointments? : What book were you looking forward to reading, but were ultimately disappointed with?

re: Perfume - Suskind

I read it while I was travelling, after picking it up from somebody who left it behind, without knowing that it had been made into a movie and without hearing any hype about it.

That being said, I very much enjoyed it. I found the topic matter to be utterly fascinating (as the days and years go by, I grow much more fond of my nose) and the passages to be beautiful and thought-provoking.

It was an interesting idea and one that was, to say the least, carried out well. I loved the novel.
