I saw the movie version in school in 10th grade nearly 10 years ago. The story always stuck with me. When I begin teaching I vowed that my students would see the movie. Now I vow that they will read the book. I give them the audio version to listen to and I have shown the movie for several years. Bryce's books are not published in the U.S. so listen to all of them. I have ordered some in hard copy from the UK.
You will never regret listening to this book. The narration is amazing. I listen to anything Bower records. This book stays in my heart all of the time and I re-listen to it whenever I need strength.
Bryce's writing is descriptive with out being superfluous. His mastery of the written word is without compare.
Listen to all of his books (Sylvia is a different narrator) and you will be the better for it!
There were scenes that I laughed to hard I cried-- while driving.
The narration of this book is divine. I recommended this book to another audiophile before I even finished it.
