I liked this one, but I saw the movie first and really liked the movie. It's hard to separate those images from the descriptions in the book, and I felt like the descriptions really lacked substance and the imagery needed to truly feel the story. They stuck really close to the book with the movie, and I felt okay about that. The twist was shocking in the book since you are really convinced of the "truth." Not my favorite book, but it was definitely interesting.
