I watched the movie many years ago, expecting to be entranced because everyone I know loves it so much. I liked it, but I didn't love it. And now I feel the same way about the book. I liked it, but I didn't love it. I didn't bother to read the "Buttercup's Baby" first chapter at the end of the book. I never read excerpts in the back of books, and even though "Buttercup's Baby" was apparently never finished and published (if it was indeed going to be a second book and not just another literary device), I decided to apply that rule here as well.
