While I never finished reading the novel, I still keep it on my shelf in hopes of making my way through it. I plan on seeing the film and I hope that it sparks my interest in the source material.

    • since i read the book, i can tell you that you really should read the book first because – well – i can’t say or i’ll give something away. but if the movie is not made well, and if things are confusing because they had to leave stuff out, then you likely won’t ever read the book.

      • Gotcha. Thanks for the heads up! 🙂 I tend to go with book first because books are my first love in life but I’ve also heard the book itself was a bit confusing or maybe just convoluted (I’ve had friends who had trouble making it through the whole thing) so it got pushed down my list in favor of other books. So now it is going to be moved back up.

  1. I’m curious about this one. I really enjoyed the book, but did wonder how they could make a movie of it when it was announced.

    Early reviews are in and it seems to be doing well. Since Cameron is raving about the 3D work I will be watching it with the goggles on.

  2. This not a film to watch on TV. Like Hugo or Avatar it really begs to be seen on the big screen. Aside from the stunning visuals, it’s an absolutely gorgeous rumination on faith and spirituality.
