The first book was a huge hit when it released in 2011. It hit Number One fast and was on the New York Times bestsellers list for more than 100 weeks, Hollywood Reporter shared. Cline has said that his novel is a sequel to the book, not the Spielberg movie. He’s been working on the novel for several years.
