I don't think I ever saw this movie. Somehow I confused it with Legends of the Fall. That's what I was expecting when I started the book. I decided to read it since Sterling proposed The Buried Giant for this year and I remembered Guillermo being enthusiastic about TRotD some months ago.
I enjoyed the book very much. I think it is a book that might reward prompt rereading. I think it plays with memory, the way we consciously or unconsciously alter our vision of the past to make it more bearable. Sometimes the narrator acknowledges that he has misremembered something. I think he does it more often than he acknowledges.
I hope to enjoy The Buried Giant as well as I enjoyed this one.
