Kikijanika | 2182 comments I've read about hundred pages now and I'll be starting the chapter Grandma's house next.

The movie seems to have followed the book very well so far. I like how this story is (view spoiler)

It's terrible how (view spoiler)

Has anybody else started yet?

I think the movie was made very well! So far it's in tune with the book.

Katie (spoondive) | 86 comments I finished the book a few days ago.
I wanted to like the book more but am kinda just eh about it.
The illustrations were beautiful.

Kikijanika | 2182 comments I'm still about halfway through. Haven't had time to read while travelling. I'm determined to finish during the trip, though!

Kikijanika | 2182 comments I finished, too.

I kind of feel the same way as you..that I should have liked the book more. (view spoiler)

Katie (spoondive) | 86 comments I agree completely. This book would make a great gift for a child that is struggling through the same situation - but as a novel I found it lackluster. Though my opinion is not with the popular vote! ;)

Kikijanika | 2182 comments Yeah, it'd be great for a child. It seems we have similar opinions about this book :)
