Not all books can do this; I read hundreds of them and can honestly say that most academic books seldom have an emotional effect on me. They might be right, but I suspect that the Angelina Jolie’s movie version would require even less student effort, and who knows, maybe their multiple-choice scores would still be acceptable.
