did not like it
bookshelves: thrown-out
Read in April, 2008

I first watched this movie and loved it. Then I decided to get the book thinking that I would love the book that much more. Well, after the first five chapters, I actually fell asleep. The book was so boring that it put me to bed. I couldn't finish the book at all. It was slow and didn't really mirror the film that much which makes me applaud the screenwriter for the film because they did a good job without making the movie boring.

Overall, I think I got through the first ten chapters and then stopped. I ended up donating the book back to the local bookstore and got rid of it.
