As I read this book I couldn't help but think of the movie. I wish I had read the book before I watched the movie because I think I would have perceived the book differently.
I loved the book. I loved Levine's twist on the Cinderella story even though that parallel didn't become clear until the end of the book. I kept looking for aspects of the movie that didn't appear in the book and that kind of built up into a let down even though the book was wonderful.
