Subject: Not sure if this is a spoiler, so moving it inside>>>>
In reply to: Reid 's message, "I am so excited about this board! (I'm not sure about the rules yet though--is it like Broch Talk where we only post replies? ) Anyway, thanks for the lovely review, Lady Jane! I have a question for you: this book has been on my TBR for an age, but I have to say that I hated the movie because it was just so cheesy! Is the book better? It usually is! I don't mind a sentimental or classical book, but not when the movie they make out of it is trite." on 13:26:51 09/19/03 Fri

The book is definitely not cheesy nor trite! Hilldebrand loves words themselves and doesn't trivialize. There are some rather significant differences between the movie and the book (wait until you read about Howard's son's death). The story has a "happy" ending, but I didn't find it "cheesy" in the least! (NT) -- Lady Jane, 20:36:07 09/19/03 Fri (NoHost/198.92.78.134)


Not sure if that reference to Howards's son's death is a spoiler.
