I thought it was an overall good story for the first 4/5 of the book. I was really captivated for the first half when the story was mostly focused on the Father and Son. Their bonding, relationship and love despite the growing philosophical differences.

Then it swayed away from the story and got a little more abstract into Sinclair's pro-Socialism rants.

Seeing that movie is actually what got me to finally go and read the book, I've been planning to read it for awhile. The parts of the story about Julia back in the day was taken from "My Life in France" while the modern parts were taken from Julie's book. They changed some of the details and such for the movie from what I can tell but nothing that made a huge impact.

I just finished a few books about Vietnam. Now, I've moved on to Iran. I just finished Iranian Rappers and Persian Porn: A Hitchhiker's Adventures in the New Iran and have just started The Last Living Slut: Born in Iran, Bred Backstage.

Donaldson's Thomas Covenant Series. He's come out with the third trilogy, so I'm re-reading the previous two so I can start the third.
It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be much mistletoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It's the most wonderful time of the year
