Excellent excellent book about courage, survival, and the human spirit. Couldn't put it down and can't recommend it enough.
Ok, it's on my wishlist now. I love good non-fiction.

JUST finished and reviewed American Psycho. Now trying to decide what to read in early December. I plan on finishing the year with Alec Guinness's A Positively Final Appearance, as I've ended the last two years with each of his previous books.

Hell, most of the stuff I read last year were selections I made because I'd seen and enjoyed the film adaptations. What difference does it make? Is it my fault that the movies were made? That I hadn't heard of the books before the movies? Seriously, there is very little advertisement for literature and innumerable books out there. Even dedicated bibliophiles can't be expected to have heard of, much less read, everything that's out there.
I totally agree.

Sometimes it's a book I never heard of, sometimes it's been on my radar and the movie coming out rekindles my interest. Also, I like to read the book first because of the inevitable movie changes and I don't want to sit there reading and comparing the entire time. I mean, the book is 99% of the time better, but it takes longer to read than watch a 2-hour movie.

I never thought I'd see a complaint about people reading.

Good luck, it took an act of God for me to get through that book.
