As many times as I’ve seen the movie, I couldn’t believe I had never read the book! I saw it as a free download one day and grabbed a copy. As always, the book was way better than the movie. Although, I enjoyed being able to picture the actors in those roles as I read the book.
The book goes deeper into the goals and motivations than a movie can. I liked that. The dialect was written in so that I could “hear” the speech of the characters. Missie is *much* younger in the book, and there are more characters than the movie shows, so the story is deeper. No spoiler, but I liked the ending of the book a lot better than the movie.
Well worth reading … even if you’re seen the movie a dozen times. 🙂
