This is a great movie, full of suspense and a good love story also. That being said, it is not as good as the book and of course things were left out of the movie that were in the book, however, unlike some of the other reviews that were mixed because it was not exactly like the book, I believe the adaption was done well. You could never fit a whole book into a 2 hour movie and some things just do not adapt well from book to movie so they must be left out. To rate a movie solely on the fact that it was not exactly like the book would be unfair. All in all it is an excellent movie to watch.
To be honest I am fascinated with the plantation house in Louisiana where this was filmed so when I found this movie I signed up. The scenery was beautiful but I thought the story line a little disjointed. I suppose if I'd read the book I would have known what was going on but as it was, I had the feeling that I'd missed something and in general felt ho-hum throughout. I've read some of Nora Robert's books so I'm fairly certain the book was better than the movie. Sorry..... but this is my opinion so there you have it.
Really good movie! Better than I was expecting. I like that it was more intriguingly spooky instead of gory.
Ok movie! Book is way better!!
The movie was good, not great. The acting was good. I didn't read the book, but I definitely felt like there were times in the movie that the writers stretched a bit. From what I've read, the book is much better.
