    Read prior to watching the film, I wrote about the film and book here. All in all, a heart-breaking read about a girl so neglected and ignored by everyone in her life, the tiniest glimmer of hope becomes a lifeline. A world full of hurt, and a difficult read at times. I'll never forget how Anne Tyler describes Evie's Dad's hobbies as ones "designed to pass the time" - just devastating.

    It's not one of the better books I've read lately and had it not been so short, I wouldn't have even finished it. There just wasn't enough going on to hold my attention...

    Maybe the remake of the movie (in theaters mid-May) will be better but the book didn't make me want to see it at all. Interesting that the characters aren't teens in the movie as they are in the book (Evie - 17, Drum - 19). Lili Taylor (Evie) and Guy Pearce (Drum) are in their late 30s & Sara Rue (who plays Evie's best friend) is 25. Not sure why they changed the characters from teens to adults. I guess I could watch the movie to see why, but then I'd have to endure this story again... I guess I'll keep wondering since it's not worth the $9 to find out.
