I read this book when it first came out in the 90s sometime. Can't remember when. I know I absolutely adored it. I know I started to feel uncomfortable as I saw certain things occur and wondered where the storyline was going. I was living in denial of the abuse at the time, so when the inevitable trigger came...it kind of derailed me. I saw the movie when it was theatrically released. Even though the book was a major trigger at a time when I was hiding my abuse...I still loved it. But seriously, guys...listen to Mike and the others: Be careful. I honestly think the trigger in this movie was one of the most difficult triggers in movies I've ever had to deal with. Please be careful.
Hope you find your strength, Mike. Be fearless!
