What an utter mess the film made of this incredible book.
I’m not sure i’ve ever been hit by such a powerful and moving ending in any book i’ve ever read as much as the one in this. I’m ever so glad i didn’t watch that crappy film first, it would have totally ruined the book experience.
If you consider what people thought of the nazis turning books into flame and smoke, then what should we think of people who take great literature and turn it into 2 dimensional shit?
I’ll write a proper review of this book when i re-read it in a few years time — i need to let my experience of the film get washed out good and proper before i go back to the book.
I do hope the people that made that 2 dimensional shit out of this wonderful book come across this page…
