A beautifully written book by Yates. A great story with an ending which is inevitable due to how relationships develop and situations change. A page turner come the last two chapters of the book. I am spurred on to read another of his novels.
This was a good read but it was so honest that I almost found it too depressing to read. It's a brave book that looks at life from the perspective of how so many young couples must feel but to scared to admit it.
Fantastic - so spot on about human nature. Read the book and loved it so thought I would be disappointed with the film - not at all Kate Winslett and leo de Caprio did the book justice - very poignant. It will stay in my memory as one of the best books and one of the best films I have ever seen.
