Much better than the film.

The film was awful, which was doubly-disappointing because it came from David Cronenberg.

I already have the book, so won't need another copy :)

A few other Ballard works to look (as well as his short stories) for are his psychoanalytic disaster novels: The Wind from Nowhere, The Drowned World, Drought (aka The Burning World), The Crystal World....
