This was a book I was first introduced to by my husband in the movie format. And I honestly didn't get the enchantment of it the first time I watched it. However, having watched it with my children through the years, although it falls under fantasy which isn't usually my genre, I have grown to love it.
We got together to watch it last night and the girls commented afterwards that they didn't love it. I reassured them that I didn't love it the first time I watched it, but that it is a story, a movie that stands the test of time. The book wasn't my favorite either, but perhaps I should take my own advice and give it another try down the road. It may grow on me.
