I have to be honest, I wasn't looking forward to this one. It was more of a "let's get it over with so it can be crossed off the list" than a "oh hey that looks good".
Just didn't seem like my style.
And it wasn't really. It's not the kind of thing I read a lot of (unless it's on a Reader's Choice list, lol), but I ended up really enjoying it.
Similar themes to The Language of Flowers, certainly.
I haven't seen the movie, but I just looked it up on IMDB and holy funny, Dylan Bruno (Colby on Numb3rs) plays Willy Jack!! I seriously think I need to see it just for that, because that cracks me up.
