I haven't read the book but I did see the film. I thought it brilliant. Loved the fact that it all went back to the meadow, where they first met. And where the movie ended.

I've seen the film as well now, and I do think the book is better, though I hated the ending.

The film was kind of confusing. I did enjoy it but I think that without knowing the story first I wouldn't have had a clue what was going on! The book explained a lot of things that didn't make sense in the film...

I haven't read it in years, but YES, I've read it. And loved it.

The ending was foreshadowed, so it came as no surprise. His feet, though. That shocked me.

I read this book too. Enjoyed it very much. I did and do recommend it to anyone that enjoys SF/fantasy genre ever since.
