    Default Atonement

    Started to read it today, 10 pages in. Quite good, liking the play story, and I fear that this little girl will turn evil.
    Anyone else read/reading it?

    I havent read the book yet. I'm trying to decide whether I should watch the movie or read the book first.

    I read the book a few years ago. It's a bit different in the Robbie story than the film, but otherwise its pretty close to it.

    I try reading the books before seeing the movie. I did it with Bridge to Terabithia last year and boy, good thing I did! I've never cried reading a book before that. I hope this is as good a book. I'm up to chapter 4 and while things are slow, I'm finding it peaceful.

    no, just Robbie's war story part......it's not really depicted in the book, but it is in the movie...

    i can't really explain, i don't want to ruin the story for anyone

    I read it and I've seen the movie....I liked both but I thought the book was just a little better.
