Movie Must Be Better Than the Book
Although this book had the potential to be captivating, gripping, intriguing, it was not; instead, I felt I had to slog through the entire story with no emotional connection with any of the characters and no shock or horror or curiosity - even when the "twist" at the end was revealed. I'm not sure who to blame for this. I suppose it could be the author that constructed a story too convoluted and dull to enjoy or, more likely, it was the translator who unwittingly stripped the passion that I suspect was in the original Spanish language version. This book was made into an Oscar-winning movie in 2010. Although I have not seen the movie, I suspect this may be one of those cases where the movie is better than the book.
