Format Read: real book
The very worst thing about this book is that it tries to follow the movie exactly. It’s just not possible and if I hadn’t seen the movie I would have been completely lost.
The very best thing about this book is that about a third of the book is information about the story and the book. Kind of a “making of” if you will. :-)
