[A book you didn't think you'd like but ended up loving.]
Looking at my usual book tastes, this one is a definite winner in this category.
(My brother isn't much of a reader.)
So Chris read this, taking his usual time. I thieved it from him whenever he left it lying around.
A few months later, Chris was allowed to watch the movie. And I watched it with him, in awe and happiness. This book was just... fabulous. Amazing. Win in all ways.
And death, killing, and a horse's head? Somehow, I was able to cope with all of that.
