really liked it
Read in December, 2008

I never saw this movie with Johnny Depp and Leonardo DeCaprio, but I may have to check it out now. The book is a times funny and at times sad. I sympathized with Gilbert Grape and I think anyone can relate to him who has ever been in a rut or felt trapped in their own life.
Some things I did not like about it for sure - like his long time affair with a married woman and when I found out the girl he had been chasing after is only 15 to his 24 I wanted to scream. But there you have it, life is not neat and tidy.
