I read ahead of my class too. They were taking far too long - so I took the book home on the weekend. And I'm not ashamed to say that I cried when ______ died. (You'll know who I mean if you've read it.)
We got lucky - a local theatre company put on the stage adaptation of it, and my entire class got to go. I cried againg when the same character died (the actor was brilliant - his looks were perfect for the role, and his acting was something else).
So, HAH! Another Canadian
Probably. That makes three of us (me, levina, and I'm guessing you too).
