Elizabeth asked:

I've seen the movie, but I've never read the book (which is backwards for me). Is the book as good as the movie?

Silvia F. I have never seen the movie, but great to know there is one because as soon as I finished reading it I thought "there should be a movie made". Honestly if you liked the movie you should definitely read the book! :)
MARIEVELYN SIERRA I have to read it
Karen I think it was better but I saw them in reverse order. This book stays with you a long time.
