Like the movie, love the book

I hate it when I see a movie first and then read or listen to a book only to find out what I lived was added in Hollywood. This was NOT that situation. The movie is wonderful and I will always love it, but I am happy to report that the book provides more depth and resolution to each of the characters that I loved in the movie as well as insight from different perspectives. So glad I took the chance on it!
