Anyone read "Cold Mountain"?

I read the book, and I've been waiting for the movie to come out on DVD. After seeing "Mystic River" I was dying to see the performance (of Renee Zellweger) that could beat out Marcia Gay Hardin for the best supporting actress oscar.

So I finally rented it. And this scene where they kill Esco Swanger and torture his wife (Kathy Baker, and I must admit, I love everyone from "Picket Fences") just seemed like a little gratuitous violence that they added to the movie. I absolutely do not remember that in the book. Do you?
