I started this book on May 21, 2013. I think I have seen the movie a long time ago......May 24, not making great progress, I should be finished this by now, but....also watching season 4 of Heros, so that is slowing me down. (Great bird watching at the cabin is also a bit distracting! 2 unusual types spotted, black headed grosbeak, and my first ever sighting of a Lazuli bunting!)......May 26, finished this off tonight, the last 2/3 must have been good as I couldn't keep my nose out of it. I would have to put this one in the weird but somewhat wonderful category. I am interested to read Kathyn's "The Kiss," her memoir, which might give me a hint as to why I found this book a little on the weird side? If I can find the movie, I would like to watch it again, now that I have read the luck finding the video, maybe I read this book before, because I was sure I watched it!!!!?? Funny...........June 2, just finished "The Kiss," and it certainly explains why I found this book slightly weird. Truth is certainly stranger than fiction!!!
