Good story, very philosophical ending, well worth the read
le 17 juillet 2008
I first watched the movie and then, after researching about the original novel, bought the book. I was very intrigued by the story line and my expectations of the book were not disappointed.
Actually, the book is much better than the movie, particularly as the ending of the book takes an unexpected turn.
There are a few things that bugged me about the story though, which ultimately prevented me from giving this book a higher rating.
Although the main character and his struggle with sanity and accepting the obvious changes of reality is wonderfully developed, the supporting characters in this book, human and otherwise, are not nearly developed enough for me to be totally convincing and in-line with the first, solitary part of the book. The end, although unexpected and intriguing, seemed very rushed and little elaborated to me. Nothing during the course of the book had actually even hinted at this somewhat surprise ending.
Overall it is a good read, I can recommend it for leisure time reading with an unexpected twist.
