I have not read the book--it was on a list to read but never made it to the top and my daughter wanted to see the movie so I went with her...  I enjoyed the movie but wondered what all I missed.  I know many spoke about how his conversion was cut from the movie and only "hinted at" which allowed him to forgive his tormentors.
