Review by missizicks
I saw the film version of this a couple of years ago and was intrigued to find out how the original novel compared. The film was a little inconsistent. The book is better than the film. The narration by the key characters is an interesting technique that was lost in the film version. There are inconsistencies in the story, contradictions that don't boil down to different points of view, but it was an engaging read and didn't take long to finish.
