really liked it
bookshelves: social-justice, novel
Read in December, 2007

I only meant to sit down and read chapter 2, but then I pulled a classic move of mine and finished the book in the next five hours.

It's a lovely book, really. I knew what happened because I'd seen the movie, which is quite good, but the book has a beautiful lyricism about it. I might even like the movie better than the book, an unusual opinion for me, but the writing and the story are very well-done nonetheless.
