Read in August, 2011

The book definitely has its moments, most of which I enjoyed more so here than in the movie. I'd read this years ago, but now after the fanfare has ceased, it's good first person storytelling. Some scenes might seem too coincidental, but the ending compensates for that by not being a heavy handed happy one. That would have counteracted any reality created by the author. I much prefer this storyline that what Hollywood tried to do to spice things up. I enjoyed it whether it's true or not so true.
