I've been a compulsive reader, writer and theatre goer all my life. My book blog is here: http://alittleteaalittlechat.wordpress.com/ Mostly food at the moment but also knitting is here: http://cathyingeneva.wordpress.com/
Today we went to see the film, or to be precise a reading of a screen play. The fact that it was 3 hours long, with over one hundred scene changes described by narration and remained gripping is testament to the possibilities of this story. The acting was fantastic and that too must reflect strength of the script.
There is a nice discussion of the book and author here.
