Anybody read this one? I just finished it --read it based on the recommendation of a friend -- and would love to discuss it with others!

Nobody's read this one yet?

Let me tempt you......

Written in the early 1960's, takes place in the 1950's, book recently re-released and movie of it starring Kate Winslett and Leonardo DiCaprio will hit theaters in early 2009. 

Highly recommended!  Check it out and let me know what you think!

I just read about the movie in Entertainment Weekly.  It sounds really, really good based on that (both the book and movie). And I didn't realize Winslet and DiCaprio remained best of friends since Titanic, too, and they were very much fond of the book, especially Winslet.
