I was so pleased to see that this was the first book to be reviewed on this site. I read it about a year ago, enjoyed every page. Like you, I read at a breakneck pace to get to the finish line. I made up my mind to see the movie when it came out...I was not disappointed. Just MHO, but it was one of the best films this year. (Sorry to disagree with you, Reid, but our differences are what makes the world go round (G). I then went back and re-read the book. I was astonished at how much I had missed the first time around in my hurry to get to the end. Enjoyed it even more. Ragdollsal

one of the best books of any genre I have read - and I loved the movie too! I thought that the transition from book to screen was brilliantly done - the director did a great job of transferring long scenes to short moments (when the doors close on the garage full of cars for example) and the build up to the end was great (even if not factual but hey it was a movie!). The book is all the more inspiring when it is realised that the author was suffering from chronic fatigue at the time she wrote it.
