This book is very short, and the movie stuck pretty close to it. I could see Heath and Jake as the characters since I've seen the movie, but that didn't take away from the passion and sweetness/sadness of this story. The love between two people that cannot be expressed openly because of the situation they're in makes it special. They always come back to each other. Aww. The very last lines really rang true to my ears. Awesome.

Campbell Scott read it, and his voice is soothing. I can't understand why we have "bad words" in our language though when quite a few of the more respected works use those words. I should have counted how many times they said the f-word. Anyway, just an observation.

“There was some open space between what he knew and what he tried to believe, but nothing could be done about it, and if you can't fix it you've got to stand it.”
