I read this book back in 2007 so it was hard for me to remember much about it. I know I liked it and rated it four stars out of five. I was very excited for the movie, for both Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon. I thought their romantic connection was believable on screen. Overall I loved the movie and I thought they did a good job. I saw it with my friend who read the book more recently than I did, she said some things were different but it did live up to her expectations. I think someone who hadn't read the book would also enjoy the movie. It has suspense, adventure, romance, and some humor. The film LOOKED beautiful, and the elephant, Rosie, was amazing.
Overall I give it a 8 out of 10.
