Another novel to movie scenario...
As soon as i heard about the film i had to see it because the book was absolutely breathtaking with a storyline which could possibly move a rock to tears!
However, the film, in parts, was as powerful as the novel but i felt that with the transformation of the novel into a movie, it had lost important parts and relationships between characters didn't seem the same which was truly dissapointing. I feel that this is the case with all the films which were originally novels but nevertheless, it is a must see film with attitudes and values which we can take and adapt to our own lives. A must see film and deffinately worth the money but I would also recommend reading the novel if you haven't done before as you will be astonised by the sheer detail of the author's writing and a distinctive style which makes the author a 'one to watch' in the not so distant future!
