As I watched the movie first it took me quite some time to understand that those two works should be seen as merely related, so I could really enjoy the book and its beautiful, but quiet spirit. And oh, I love it. It's moving. Moving because of al those different pieces of live distributed over all those layers. Because of the ironically presented [whatever]. Because of stories of people, and the way they are written, and the way we come to know them.
Most of the time while I read this book I thought I'd rate it 4 stars. Now it's 5 again. Hm. I'll keep it like this.
