I hate this story, although not because I think it is poorly conceived or written. I just flat out dislike the utter sadness I'm left with at the ending. Which I suppose is a testament to the skill of the author. Please note, I'm not saying that my dislike means I am opposed to it being turned into a movie...it just means that I don't want to watch it.
On a more related note, did anyone out there see Zathura? What do you think of Josh being cast in Bridge?
