Anyone else seen it? What did you think of it?
(I should add, in passing, that my Kindle PW2 proved its worth as a way of getting through the seemingly endless adverts and trailers that preceded that film. Thank goodness for illuminated readers!)
I haven't watched the movie, and like you I was thinking that the book probably wouldn't work as a movie. I read the book many years ago, and truly loved it, one of those books that leave a mark, so I was a bit concerned that the movie would spoil it. But after your comments, I'll give the movie the benefit of the doubt and I'll watch it.
