The book was excellent.
12 February 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I just finished reading the book "Jennie" by Douglas Preston and thought "This would make a great movie". Curiosity got the better of me and I decided to double check Douglas Preston's name on IMDb and lo and behold, there already was a movie.

Sadly, after reading the reviews posted here, I can see that the movie hasn't taken any of what was presented in the book at all. In fact, many of the names have changed and the fact that the main character in the book, Jennie, was not mentioned in any of the reviews is cause enough to realise Disney certainly did a disservice to this wonderful book.

The book is slow to start with, but it certainly is plot driven and builds to a shocking climax. The last 30 pages were read through tear-filled eyes.

Read the book. It's the best one I've read in over two years, and I read about 50 a year. "Inspirational", "amazing", "moving", "thought provoking".

From reading the other reviews, it just goes to show that Hollywood (or Disney) can truly destroy an originally creative idea.
