I recently read this after watching the film. What an amazing book, it kind of scared me but not in the horror kind of way but the way in which it seeps into your dreams. *Shivers*. The film was fantastic and because I watched it first I suppose the book lost the element of surprise, but the performances from Marky Mark Wahlberg and Saoirse Ronan blew me away. Saoirse has been in another big film, Atonement, and I hated that film and she played an awful character but it just goes to show how good of an actress she is if she can change my mind in a completely different part. Definitely recommend anybody to read this, and watch the film!
