I read this book when I was in Durham as part of a work book club; I thought that I was going to see the movie soon afterwards. However, I never made it to the movie theater. It arrived in my mailbox last weekend and I started it then. Since I had to do homework (stupid law school), it took me over a week to finish the movie. Overall, I thought the adaptation was good. Of course, some things were synthesized and other things were left out all together. The cinematography was gorgeous. I was surprised to find out that none of the actors were Japanese and I thought that the movie would be subtitled.
Which Screen: Small screen is fine.
