A Goodreads user asked:
Is the book similar to the movie?
Lucy i think the movie was horrible. it did generally follow the storyline but it got SO MUCH wrong. i was disapionted. i cannot spell, sorry guys.
Sharon Darrow I saw the movie years ago, very excited because I loved the book so much. I remember thinking that while the movie followed the main story line pretty well, it just did not have the full richness of the book, nor did it have the emotional impact.
