Reviews and ads seem to be everywhere this weekend - in the Telegraph Magazine, ans on the back of the Times Saturday Review.
An ad (doubtless the same one) was also on the back of the Guardian's weekend magazine. If I'd based a view on the picture and not on what I've read here, I'd have guessed that the film was faithful to the book.
By the way, can anyone tell me why magazines are published over a month in advance?
I think it's basically an arms race. Where several magazines compete for a particular market, the publishers tend to believe (presumably on the basis of experience) that the one which first gets out its issue titled October (or any other month) will have an advantage. So over the years the publication dates drift earlier and earlier.
