I have read the book and watched the movie. They are both very unique in its own way. It was confusing to keep up with the stories of the mothers and relating it to the daughters in the movie but the book explains it better. Although the movie is excellent, I prefer the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
