    I didn't read it. I read Kite Runner when it read out, as everyone said how good it was, but I hated it! Strange, no-one seems to agree with me though

    i actually thought it was better than the kite runner. miriam is an absolutely incredible character, didn't you think?

    i'm worried that a film will happen, and ruin it entirely. i don't think that a book of that depth could work on film
