Edited to say:
To the ones that have NOT read the book:
spoilerwarning: If you know nothing about the film and you do not even want to know if it is a happy or sad story, then do not read this thread. However that is all we are giving away in this thread, so if you don't mind that, it is okay to read it.
To the ones that HAVE read the book:
Be very carefull about spoilers. Use the special spoilerfunction if you need to (see 'About this forum' thread). However we have found out that is very hard talking about the book without giving away at least the general feel of it, so that is okay to talk about if you do it in very general terms. Read the posts already done, so you will know what is okay to talk about without using the spoilerfunction.
