I read this book recently, and then watched the movie, too. I enjoyed it immensely - the book far better than the movie. Crime genres are not usually my thing, but the book flowed smoothly and told a gripping story, though I was pretty sure Dave hadn’t killed Jimmy’s daughter, though it was kind of ambiguous.
What was the message I was supposed to take away, though, if any? That one act can change three, or even six lives? Or something more specific about child molestors?
Or is it just a good, if hard, book to read? It seems like it appealed to many people, though - it won all kinds of awards.
