First of all i like to say I read this book purely because the movie is coming out. That being said that gets me excited some books i only discover because of the hype of a movie coming out. This book is thought provoking, it did tug at my heart strings a bit at the end. I think the movie will probably take it beyond what we are offered in the book which is okay the book not that big a jumping off point is okay as well. I am interested to read the other stories that are part of the quartet.
