If you loved the flim, the book is a "must" read
on 5 March 2015
Bought the book because I loved the film. Found the book inconsistent in small ways. First, the main character is described as paunchy but then he's been working out all summer and in good shape which is inconsistent, as though the author forgot how he described the character.. There are changes in the marriage that conflict with earlier information. Preferred the film, but the book did leave a doubt about what actually happened because the book's description conflicted with the film's peak, leaving less doubt about events.
