Hmmm I didn't know that either! Thanks!

They played this movie on the plane on the way back from Mexico. I fell asleep near the end, but from what I remember it did follow the story line of the book. Way better than my sister's keeper IMO.

aww, thanks!love.gif

I've heard good things about the movie- I haven't seen it yet, but from what I've heard it does follow the book pretty closely. I remember one of my friends complaining that it was difficult to understand if you hadn't read the book. It's sitting at the top of my netflix queue- yay.

Thanks Nikki & Aimee, I'm relieved to hear that it's somewhat close to the book! :) haha I'd agree that if you haven't read the book, the movie is probably wayyyyyy confusing! rofl.gif

It actually did stay pretty close to the book...enough to make me cry like a baby. But they did leave out the very end part of the book, which I was hoping would stay in, but overall I really enjoyed the movie. Reading the book it's hard to figure out how it would be translated into a film, but the director managed fairly well.

well that's good to hear, thanks! :) I'm sure I'll cry too lol I cried 3 times reading the book. Why would they take the end out though? Seems strange, they could have kept it I'm sure...
