It didn’t quite live up to the book, but how many movies do? There just wasn’t enough time to do justice to the plot. I felt like time was much more compressed, for instance in terms of the love affair, which made it less believable and less emotional. And while both Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon acted well, I’m still not sure I think they work as a couple.
Nevertheless, it reminded me why I liked the book so much. It’s such a great concept and kept me hooked.
