Catherine What about the ending?

Jessup The ending was a doozy!! It was sad - I didn't like the alternate (but more realistic) version of the story. I wonder if the author was trying to say something about faith by giving us that alternate will we continue to believe in the fantasy when confronted with "a perfectly reasonable explanation"? It's been a while since I read the book but that's my take. I still haven't seen the movie, have you? It looks good!

Catherine Read your review. Wonderful!

Catherine Oops, review was Jesse, not you. Check it out. I agree, the author wanted to give us faith, and thus hope. Have been waiting to see the movie until I finished the book.
