There were quite a few parts/jokes in this film that I found hilarious, and i enjoyed this movie overall. (Perhaps i have a unique sense of humour) Be warned, the description doesn't mention it, but there are some explicit adult jokes in this film.
I decided to read this book because of the references I see to it. I read the first chapter over the course of several weeks because I had such a difficult time getting into it, and it frankly put me to sleep. I'm so glad I stuck with it, it was a great book and became more engrossing as I got farther into it. It was also very interesting to get an intimate look at what life was like many year ago.
This movies made me much more aware of some of the challenges faced by war refugees.
My 10 and 12 year old children actually finished this book before I did, and we all really enjoyed it. It's informative, easy to read, and enjoyable. As a bonus, they no longer ask for or want to eat McDonalds. After what I learned, I'm much more aware of the how the meat I buy has been processed as well. I recommend this book as an easier read than the author's Fast Food Nation.
It was nice to have so many different subjects covered in one book.
