highly reccomended, especially if you liked the movie. unfortunately I had the abridged version (it sounded like the original version was an extra 500 pages).
I was about half way through, original version, when I bought a house. So its been put on the back burner.
Its a really good book. Hopefully I get some free time so I can finish reading it.
Any ideas on what I should read next?
