message 3: by Meaghan (new)

Meaghan (littleichabod) is that book really different from the movie? i haven't decided if i want to read it or see it first...


message 4: by Jaleh Rose (new)

Jaleh Rose Yes, and suprisingly, I like the movie a lot better than the book. I saw it and then read it...and that's the way I would tell you to do it. I liked the book, but I feel like if you read it and then see it you'll just be sitting there through the entire movie wondering how in the world they adapted that movie from that book. They are so different though that it probably won't matter too much either way.
