Echo Is that why I thought all the characters looked wrong when I watched the movie? I thought I was just a case of, "Little kid who expects actors to look just like you imagined the book characters to look when that really isn't possible." Hmm . . . makes me want to go track down the descriptions and pay closer attention.
Wonderful review, by the way. :)

David Thanks! Yeah, some of the the descriptions are markedly different from the actors who eventually played them. I believe Fezzik had a mustache in the book, and when I read that I thought, "Silly William Goldman... Andre the Giant doesn't have a mustache!"

But if he did it would have been majestic.

Emily I think both Jurassic Park (the movie) and Jurassic Park (the book) each have their own merits and are good in their own rights, but I have to say that the movie is better than the book.

David Definitely. The movie was one of the best sci-fi movies of the 90s, and while the book was fun, it wasn't really much better than your average adventure novel.

Emily That is most definitely true.

David Ah, right! I just like names beginning with O. So he shall henceforth be Peter O'Cook.
