Alright. The book is just....amazing. The book and the parts of the film I"ve seen (I"ve yet to see the whole thing) have brought out such emotion in me that nothing else ever has. I couldn't read the book in one sitting, it just ruined my mood whenever I read it for a long period of time. Ruined it because it was so devastating and honest and quite truthfully, I couldn't handle it all in one sitting. Unfortunately, I had started reading it during the week I was prepping for finals. (damn you selby!) When I read the intro from Aronofsky ( I'm sure it was Aronofsky ), and he said how his friend borrowed the book and said it ruined his vacation, I just shrugged it off. But it was so true. It was...amazing. I laughed, I cried. I cried more then I laughed. Did you others get the same reaction? From you're posts, I"m getting the feeling you got a similar reaction?
