I've been fortunate to attend two previews of the movie which comes out August 10th. Today I was asked which I liked best, movie or book. For the first time I have to say it's a toss up. That isn't usually the case. Yes, the movie is two hours and seventeen minutes long. It never lags. A couple of things were left out, but that's okay. Everything included is necessary. I love all the characters even Hilly!

I like the book better. The movie was good too, ties in well with the book overall although the movie's ending was a little flat compared to the book. It was definitely worth the watch.

I loved the book and loved the movie. I thought the movie was true to the book and I haven't seen that too often.

As I was reading this book I noticed the book was almost like a movie script.

Perhaps that why both the movie and book are similar?

Will see the movie this week! Can't wait.

I have now seen the movie three times (invitations that I couldn't turn down). Loved it every time tho. I am now reading the book. Have to agree with Mary that I loved both. They are a little different, but both are great.
