errr.. i just read (again!) the hottest state, and i remembered that u once asked me to quote its line from the novel which told something about the movie. here it goes, i found it in chapter 1 page 12-13:
“Back at my window, looking out at what was now HER door, I had the profound feeling that my life had changed. I did. Like when a kid lying in bed late at night stares at his dark ceiling and figures out for the last few words to a great novel or the final image before a fantastic movie cuts to black.
Looking back now, with furniture in my new apartment, I realize that I was right: my life had changed. Not in the way I’d thought, though. I hadn’t met the woman I was to grow gray with. I was twenty years old, and by the time I was twenty-one, I’d be heartbroken. I didn’t know that then. I just stared out the window, wondering which light was hers, took out a huge piece of paper, got out a black Magic Marker, and in big, bold block letters wrote “GOOD MORNING” and placed it in the window.”
— they are such promising words of the book itself. although you know, the promise spoken (written) is that you might get sad thoroughly this novel written by a brokenhearted actor cum director as Ethan Hawke. *prettttt…*
