I quite liked it with it's version on hindu constant re-incarnation etc............it reminded me a bit of 'the tatoo'd man with Rod Stieger (old film)...where he played the same man in different lives, times.............also the people all in white on the boats that could skim......reminded me of a cross between ''battle star gallactica ''and the'' love boat '' D .........love jim broadbent too

Based on what I've heard of the film, I would've strongly advised doing the book first.......... but then again if it's half as good as The Illustrated Man, it's better than I thought.
