Read in August, 2007

It took me a while to get into it, I had a hard time following it at first. Seeing the movie cleared it up somewhat but I still thought it was confusing with all the flashbacks...however, once I got into it I was blown away. It's so beautiful, and whimsical, and nostalgic. There are so many levels to it, and at one point it became so beautiful and horrible that I threw it across the room, without even realizing I was going to! What makes it more incredible is that the author was only in his twenties when he wrote it.It was that amazing. Give it a chance and let me know what you think.
