"I had read the book first and loved it. So I was eager to watch the movie of it.
I understand that the books are always better than movie version, and they have to cut scenes out from the book, but they not only cut through (what seems as half the book) they also changed so much of the story. Had I saw the movie first, I probably wouldn't have wanted to read the book.
The story itself (for the movie version) is still good. It does connect you to the book even more.
I wasn't too thrilled with Melissa Gilbert as Zoya, she did ok. Simon wasn't really what I expected either. But the other characters were great. Bruce filled the role of Clayton perfectly.
If you haven't read the book, I would recommend reading the book first, then watching the movie.

"It's almost as good as the book. Really worth the dough. However, some parts of the movie is pretty stiff."

"...for Melissa Gilbert. She is absolutely pathetic as the main carachter. I can't believe they showed her dancing ballet, as a teenager. She looks like a fat, white duck, absolutely graceless, fat and stumbling in the stage. Ridiculous. Plus, the historical mishaps already mentioned by other reviewers. Bruce Boxleitner still very handsome; pity Clayton was a short lived character."

"I wanted to see this film after watching on television another one of the films based on one of her books. What drew me to it was how Zoya escaped the fate of her family. If I could get a few of her books I want to read on dvd instead, I would buy them too."
