How could you take a perfectly good book - nay, a great book, and butcher it so completely?
When I heard you'd made a movie of The Memory Keeper's Daughter, I was so excited! I ran into my office and told Cathy, who was listening to the book on CD at the same time I was reading it. We finished about the same time, and she was excited too.
I recorded it Saturday night, but waited an extra two days - two days - to make sure I had ample time to watch it uninterrupted.
Man, I don't know if Cathy saw your movie, but I bet if she did, she's as disappointed as I am.
Shame on you! I understand having to condense things - I did sit through all three installments of The Lord of the Rings - but really, you just started making stuff up there after a while.
And - and! Leaving out some very pivitol plot points to boot.
The ending? You took it from a bittersweet moment to a full-on sapfest.
Oh, Lifetime. I expect so much more from a group of folks who loves The Golden Girls nearly as much as I do.
I hope you've learned your lesson this time. Don't let me catch you doing this again.
