I liked this book, but I actually read it because I liked the movie and so I was (unpleasantly) distracted by the differences. The movie was SO different that I don't think they should have used the "based on" phrasing. They probably should have said "inspired by actual events" because the truth of Frances Mayes' journey is much, much different. That being said, I like the book as well. However, I did find it difficult to get through in parts. The tempo was a little plodding at times.
