MY THOUGHTS: I have been wanting read this book for years. I've seen the movie years ago. So thought it was safe to read the book. What do mean by safe.....once I've seen the movie the book usually loses something. But as I said it has been years since I saw the movie. The book was worth the wait. It's a great murder mystery with lots of characters. The story line keeps you on the edge trying to figure out what's coming next. If you have seen the movie.....try reading the book, it's a really great book!
This book is also for a reading challenge I'm doing. It's the Birthday Month Reading Challenge. Read a book of an author who's birthday is in the month. This is my book for the month of March, and yes I'm way behind, but am hoping to get caught up. This book is also for the Full House Reading Challenge.
