5.0 out of 5 stars Even if you already seen the movie you'll love this book, 30 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Be with You (Paperback)
Maybe you don't know, but this story was made into a fabulous little movie in Japan a few years ago (and a tv series also).
The movie of the same title , is one of those absolutely poetical and magical romantic movies that you cannot find in Hollywood so called romantic movies anymore.
It's hard to describe this without spoiling the end of the movie and the book so i won't say no more.
One thing i can say, if you're looking for an original love story with a touch of "paranormal" thrown in into you can't go wrong with this one.
I've read that Hollywood is going to remake the original movie based on this novel so please do yourself a favor and see the original movie before the remake ruins all the poetry and humanity that's inside this amazing love story that you won't forgget.
I can only say, read this book.
Actualy i recommend that you see the original movie first. Contrary to what i usualy say, i have to admit that the suprise ending of this story has to bee first experienced as image sound and music. And don't worry, the book will still retain the same magic even if you learn about the ending by watching the movie (and maybe not the oposite). Because there are plenty of things in this book that aren't in the movie (a few surprises also) and so you'll enjoy it very much. Trust me.
The reason i recomend you to see the movie first is only because this story has such a beautiful, unexpected, poetical and beautiful ending that it's a shame if you go into the movie already knowing what to expect after reading this absolutely beautiful book.
And make no mistake, this is one of the best and most original romantic books out there. The type of book you'll want to buy for someone you love.
Believe me.

Thanks. Trust me, see the movie first. Its difficult to buy on dvd nowadays but you can find it online in torrents still.
Just make sure you see it with a good sound quality because the music is very important.

Then buy the book because it´s the perfect complement and it has a ton of details that aren´t in the movie.

But see the movie first because the last 10 minutes are like a punch in the stomach and absolutely beautiful.

ps: make sure you see the movie and not the tv series which is very bad.

PS2: stay away from IMDB or anything that will spoil the ending twist. Do not try to learn anything about the movie before seeing it.
