  1. I love him, too, and fully enjoyed Theory of Everything. I’m curious about the book on which it was based, too, but have no time to read it this semester. So, if anyone out there has read the book,… was it a good read? How does it differ from the film?


    1. Hi Kim. I haven’t read the book and I’ve been trying to see the movie, but we’ve been so busy, no time to see it. If I hear anyone talk about the book versus the film, I’ll let you know.
