I find myself glad that i was unable to see the movie and was able to read the book first. Books are always so much better, now i want to see the movie. This was such a sad, moving, heroic, stick in the mind read. I hate to say i loved the book due to the sad treatment of humans, but it was so well written and i could not put it down. My heart broke and i cried for all of the people that have in the past gone thru such treatment.
I have not seen this movie. Reading the book, I found the story hard to follow and confusing. It referred to characters without having introduced them first, and it seemed to have little historical value. I was not interested enough to finish the book. If you have not seen the movie, I would not recommend this book.
