ANNIE PROULX HAS WRITTEN A MODERN DAY MASTERPIECE THE SHORT STORY SHOULD BE READ FIRST TO REALLY APPRECIATE THE FILM,BUT IF YOU'VE SEEN THE FILM PLEASE READ TEH STORY I LOVE THEM BOTH, THIS IS A 'TRUE LOVE STORE' REGARDLESS TO THE FACT THAT BOTH CHARATERS ARE MALE! LOVE IS LOVE, GOD BLESS ANNIE PROULX AND ANG LEE (MOVIE DIRECTOR) FOR THEIR CREATIVITY!

I did'nt get the connection from this short story.

I think if I had read the actual story and not the movie tie-in I would have felt more connected to the charters. The story is one that I'm sure a lot of people can relate to. I am the mom of a gay man who recently came out to me. Reading this book did give me some insi...
I think if I had read the actual story and not the movie tie-in I would have felt more connected to the charters. The story is one that I'm sure a lot of people can relate to. I am the mom of a gay man who recently came out to me. Reading this book did give me some insight to what he must have struggled with his whole life. I will definetly see the movie.

    The movie has to be better

    This a short story, 30 pages, not a novel. I hate paying $7.00 for short stories. There was not much depth to the story to justify all the good ratings. They must be writing about the movie and not this story.

    Not worth the money

    This book was not worth the money. They may have made a block buster movie from it but the book was not written well, the story line was vague, didn't hold any interest.

    1 1/2 Stars for the Scenery

    To call this a LOVE? story is beyond comprehension. This is not love, maybe lust. It most certainly is about lies, deceipt, mistrust, and child abuse. You have two men who are constantly lying to THEIR families of their whereabouts, and their whatabouts. One of these men constantly seeking LUST with other stray, and possibly STD infected men who then moves these infections around the country and to other families. I know we live in a 'ME' society these days, but the abuse they put upon their children is unforgiveable. These two mens' time together would have been much better spent with raising their children and teaching them the values of honesty and the true meaning of what MARRIAGE means. You CANNOT mentally abuse your wife without mentally abusing your children. If they so needed to be with each other, then come forth and let ALL of your family understand this. 'BE A MAN'

    Where?

    You know, fairytales about gay cowboys is just way over my head, I mean where is this country going to? Gay cowboys, why not touch some other sensitive issues in our country instead of publicly propagandizing homosexuality to our children and all the other people. Very Dissapointed.
