I read this book last year in my English class, and we just had a reunion to go and see the film, which has just come out in the UK. I ended up enjoying the book, and the film as well. It was a shame that they had to cut out parts which I hadn't realised whilst reading the book were quite important. It's a heartbreaking film - very sad (tissues will be required), but also quite shocking and a little disturbing at times. Fantastic though, and the acting of the leading three (particularly Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield) was superb. I definitely recommend this film, but be warned, the advert is not a true representation of the film. It is kind of being marketed as a lovely Valentine's Day film - it is not. Whilst it is about love, this film is about so much more, and we really get you thinking. Read the book for a fuller understanding of the true message. A lovely, tragic film.
