    I saw it last week and didn’t think much to it but it’s just hit me – it’s a metaphor for married life, innit?
    Two characters sharing the same space, one could quite happily kill the other, they survive through bad times but at the end one walks away without even looking back…

    I tried to talk to SHMBO about it but she just growled at me.

    Haven’t seen film, but have read book. Superb with a jaw dropping twist at the end that I’m told is more or less ignored in the film.

    Metaphor for married life? Not sure, though being stuck in a confined space with a tiger, a chimp and a recalcitrant zebra is certainly a metaphor for family life.. 😀

    Awesome book and awesome film

    Read the book 5 years ago, and my memory is a little hazy, but i believe the end was true to the book

    Were you told that by someone who hadn’t seen the film ???

    Yeah as far as I remember it’s the same ending. The question is which version of the story (life) do you prefer?
