If you wanted it to be exactly like the book you are going to be disappointed. However the movie was awesome and I loved every bit of it. It was well done and the acting was great. I re-read the book to get my bearings and saw how different it was but still in love with the movie. The set was gorgeous and the horses are beautiful. Tim McGraw has proved himself to be a wonderful actor. And changing the "main" characters from Male boy to Female , I think, made the movie better. I cried like a baby in parts even when I knew how it turns out. We can all relate to Katy and her issues- makes her more real in peoples eyes. The book has so many descriptions in it you may lose the story at some point but the movie keeps right on trucking.
