I picked up this book after seeing Carm reading it on The Sopranos. I am so glad that I did.

I grew very attached to the characters and found myself crying at many points, every time I've read it.

I enjoyed the idea that this was written as a memoir because it made the character seem even more real than even the most elegant descriptions could have.

The book is beautiful and very well written. The pictures that were painted in my head were very great. I liked the attention to detail ...more I picked up this book after seeing Carm reading it on The Sopranos. I am so glad that I did.

I enjoyed the idea that this was written as a memoir because it made the character seem even more real than even the most elegant descriptions could have.

The book is beautiful and very well written. The pictures that were painted in my head were very great. I liked the attention to detail that the author had when describing the characters, the settings, and the landscaping.

I am also glad that I read this book before I watched the movie. The pictures that I had envisioned from reading the book were much more elaborate than they were portrayed in the movie. I think had I seen the movie first that would have taken much away from what I got from the book. If you are thinking of watching this movie I would recommend reading the book first
