    I wrote a review for the sake of writing one and I ending up dwelling in a similar limbo. I know I enjoyed it and I know it was faithful (I re-read it 3 times around my viewing just to be more than sure) but could not help that so much was lost when the supporting characters, like the newstand Bernies, disappeared. The ending did not have the same resonance or meaning that the book had. The true heart of the book and the power of loss is hammered in by the dead eyes of those we got to know so well but were not the heroes.
