Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good I enjoyed the book as much as the movie but i was not a fan of the ambiguous ending in the book, is she in love, is it obligation?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the movie? I was assigned to read this book for an English class and enjoyed it very much. I haven't seen the film yet so I can't answer the question I posed in the title. Toibin does a good job depicting the internal battle inside his main character - one many will be able to identify with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moving and timeless Every once in a while a book comes along that makes me wonder why I didn't read it sooner. This was exactly one of those books. A moving tale that will be relatable to anyone struggling to find the balance between looking back and moving forward.
