Anyone read the book?
I had to read this book for school and I enjoyed greatly. I heard there was a movie and I had to rent it.
(Some spoilers in this paragraph, so just a warning.)
The movie was pretty good, and followed some events in the book, but Steve was a character that was in the book for about 3-5 sentences. He was one of Lan's (Bay Ly's sister) boyfriends. In the book, she leaves with a man named Ed, and he doesn't kill himself in the US, and Bay Ly doesn't threaten to leave him. Ed ends up dying three years after she goes to the US, not of suicide, but of some sort of disease. And Steve is more like one of the American boyfriends Bay Ly had, who was Jimmy.
The movie was pretty good overall and captured main events, but I don't get why they had Steve in the movie. There was barely a Steve. And I wish they would've showed her with at least one of her American boyfriends, to see how she gets a broken heart from them.
Well, just thought I'd rant real quick. The book is extremely good, so I definitely suggest you guys read it.
Don't think you're more than this or above all this.
