It's neither.Is it the normal critical response or is there something novel?
Well, it did say introduction. Does it go into his history of gaming the stock market or terrible parenting skills? Or when you say ‘history‘, is it just Marxism?It's neither.
The author is clearly pro-Marx (or at least sympathetic), but the actual writing is unbiased. More "here's the history of Marx, here's the history of his ideas, here's how those ideas were implemented in the 20th century, here's why some people say Marxism is (or isn't) relevant in the 21st century, make your own conclusions."
I don't think anyone who was familiar with Marx is going to get anything out of it.
-Nothing about the stock market.Well, it did say introduction. Does it go into his history of gaming the stock market or terrible parenting skills? Or when you say ‘history‘, is it just Marxism?
The film is very different from the novel in terms of tone, if not plot. Plotwise, they're pretty much identical, apart from the film featuring Jupiter rather than Saturn, and the film is a lot vaguer on plot details. However, the novel, to me, moves quickly, and you can tell that it's written by someone who's passionate about the genre. The film is slow, cerebral, and more open to interpretation.I haven't actually watched the film before. It would be interesting to see how it compares to the novel.
