    Fast Read

    This is one of my favorite books. It's such a quick read, you are so engaged in the characters that you don't want to put the book down. I did feel like the ending was a little rushed but I think they might have told the author that she had to keep a page limit. I could have read another 300 pages of her writing easily.

    I enjoyed the novel very much. The plot is very interesting and highly recommend the book to people who don't mind drama and emotion.

    Great book! My only complaint is that the characters are very black and white- either all good or all bad. Which makes it a little less believable because no one is that way! But otherwise, gripping story and great historical fiction.

    This movie was as good as the reviews said it was. I rarely rent or buy a movie but I couldn't wait for this one to come to tv so I bought it. It was well worth it. It was serious and thought provoking yet funny where it needed to be. A must see.

    Really good read that made a recent plane trip go very quickly. The characters were really well-written and believable. A nice mix of humor and heart-break.

    I heard about the movie, but wanted to read the book first. Of course, of course the book was better and the movie left out so much! It has to be a good read to keep me interested. This book was wonderful! It brought me into the world of the era and made me feel as if I was there. I had many a laugh and shock at some of actions of the characters. It's a wonderful book, but it can cause a tear here and there! The author gives such visionary detail that you can picture the scene easily. This is one of my favorites.

    Such a wonderful book. It really tugs at the heartstrings. If you've seen the movie but not read the book, I recommend you do so now. It really helps put the movie in perspective.
