I found this book heartbreaking, funny, inspiring, and very educational...one of my all time favorites!
Je dois dire que par rapport au film, je crois que le film est meilleur, mais ce n'est pas parce que le livre est pourri, au contraire il est très bon mais il y a plus de twists dans le film et c'est pour cela que je l'aime plus.
