Together in Spirit

An online reading group ('TIS a reading group!) to bring together friends, and friends of friends, who aren't able to be in a conventional reading group due to constraints of time or geography.

And when did you see - the film

Watched the film recently, and absolutely loved it. Really felt it captured the essence as portrayed in the book (even if there were the usual annoying petty changes for the sake of it). Glad they had the integrity to stick with Morrison and his dad both being very flawed men, stopping the film being saccharine. But also felt it stood by itself. Unlike many adaptations, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to someone who hadn't read the book. How did anyone else find it?
