Better than Play, Opera, or Movie
This is an amazing and beautiful book. I had read the play and seen the opera and the movie, and liked them all, but I was still surprised how much I liked this book. This was intense and captivating. The structure of the novel is wonderful, with the end at the beginning (which would have been too intense at the end) then transitioning narrator and the beginning of the story then culminating powerfully. It is quite rare that a novel gets me to cry, but this one sure did (even though I knew the story). Even if you didn't like the play, opera or movie, I would still recommend this wonderful novel. The narration is pretty close to perfect, with multiple actors doing a great job with the challenging and emotional characterizations.
