really liked it
bookshelves: 2009-ish
Read in May, 2010

Having read the book, I now see what a simplified version of this tale the film was. This struck me as somewhat ironic, seeing as a recurring theme in the book is Jim's (occasionally comic, often desperate) attempts to rationalise the complexities of the situations surrounding him.
