You can't understand without reading the book, but it's a good adaptation.
To everyone complaining this is a "terrible adaptation": It is still a great movie. And to be honest I felt it to be very much in the spirit of the book. Read the book first and watch this one second.
The book whilst seminal, isn't exactly a great story in the cinematic sense, so it's no wonder that this adaptation felt a little flat.
