After such a lovely and amazing movie, I was a little disappointed with this book. It's very short, really a short story and quite sparse -- written with little emotion and the minimum of words. I found myself imagining the softness of the movie while reading it.
I enjoyed this more than the movie, it has more details and more insight to both of the characters than i believe a movie can deliver. It's a really quick read, which was somewhat dissapointing cause 50 pages isn't really long...but the overall story spanned a lifetime.
Wasn't what I thought it would be. I wanted to read the book instead of watching the movie and I'm glad I did. I think it was worth reading, although it wasn't the best book I've ever read, it was still an enllightening one.
This is a great story despite the movie adaptation. The book is much better.
This book is short, sweet and simple. It's a beautiful love story and a lot happens, but you wouldn't believe it with how thin the book is. A very good read. If you haven't seen the movie yet, I suggest you read the book first.
Very much in-line with the movie, a quick thought provoking read. Proulx has an interesting writing style that did engage me.
I really liked this book, a sad story about love and loss. The movie was great too, very true to this book.
