If you have the choice read the book it is far superior to the movie.
15 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If this movie was to stand alone in it's on right it could be consider at least good. However seeing as it is based on a book it is hard to judge without comparing them to each other. The book created strong relationship and bond between the people and the land. It did not clean relationships and problem up simply to please the reader that is one of the book's most endearing qualities. The movie however simplifies the complexity of the emotions, characters, and story line that the book so richly builds. The other point I think they lost sight of was this wasn't just a love story it was a story of truth, human kindness, growing up, and survival. I also believe the movie down play Kathy incredible strength and stubbornness. By the end of the book you understand that Kathy has matured and that the decision she made is final and purposeful. The movie however lacks in the sense you know she made said decision, but there is no substantial evidence that make you believe she will not change her mind. If you have the choice read the book it is far superior to the movie.
