[A] phenomenally enrapturing and reverberating work of art in its own right...[that] vividly illuminates the minds of the characters, greatly enhancing our understanding of their temperaments and predicaments and providing more expansive and involving story lines. The dynamic between the movie and the novel is vital and fascinating, and people will be eager to talk about what each version has in common and how they diverge. --Booklist
