What other readers are saying about this title:
I finally read this book over ten years after seeing the movie (which is on my all time great film list) and I see now how both a book and its movie can be excellent without an identical sense of the story. The difference is inherent in the dissimilar nature of the media. In this case the story is essentially the same and nothing is lost comparing one to the other. First, it is great story telling. It is so easy to read – there is nothing intrusive from the author to spoil the unfolding of the plot. The book is the same and at the same time different from the movie. I have a better understanding now of the common controversy over whether a movie captures the essence of the book Hoeg has told a very compelling tale. It makes really great reading.
