Deb Obrien Well, I know im late on the scene reading it, and I never saw the movie....but I am shocked at the ending, which I wont reveal. Made me feel sorta nauseous. Ok read, a little draggy at times.

Leslie The whole book and movie are absolutely horrific. We could choose to read it as part of a counseling internship. There are so many issues...

Sharon I think Dorothy Allison is a genius and an amazing, strong woman.

Jennifer W I didn't know it was a movie! I read this several years ago and remember knowing that something horrible was going to happen to Bone throughout the book. However, when it arrived, it was no less powerfull. I also remember thinking that the characters were very well written and distinct individuals.
