    Just finished it and cried for the last 4 chapters or so of the book! The funniest and saddest book I have ever read.

    I never read it, but I did see the movie on Dec. 26th. It is now one of my favorites. The last part of the movie I cried.

    I just looked for it in our local library the other day. They didn't have it, so I've got to order it from another library.

    I read it a while ago. It was probably my favorite book too. If i did cry, i'd never admit it [​IMG] But i look forward to seeing the movie. But since i dont cry, i better watch it alone [​IMG]

    I haven't read it and I haven't seen the movie but I really want to see the movie and then read the book, I would rather really love the movie and then love the book more. Usually I read the book and then see the movie and I am disappointed. I will do it the other way around this time.

    It is an awesome book. I too don't have a desire to see the movie. There is no way the movie can tell you everything you learn in the book. Great book and yes I cried. And yes, I am a man.

    i read the book. i probably wont see the movie. i liked the book BUT, as someone who works with dogs that have multiple behavioral problems, I kept analyzing things and stuff. It didn't hit home like it did with others. Bummer.
