I gave this book three stars, mainly I think because I love the movie so much and reading this book (which is based on the movie, not the other way around) was like reliving it. That's really all there is to say about this book. It's a nice read, but the movie is naturally better. There were some small changes that the author made that I didn't mind, but the ending of the book was slightly different than in the movie and in that case I did prefer the movie.

If you are into the la la land thoughts of youth, self sexual discovery and search for meaning of life etc...if not, at least you can read about artsy people living in the country and wishing, if only i had their free time.

This is one of a few books that has been made into a really beautiful movie as well. Another would be Dr. Zhivago. It also has an eclectic soundtrack. You have to be in the mood for one of those YA coming of age themes. In the movie Liv Tyler and Jeremy Irons are compelling in an almost creepy way.
