it was amazing
bookshelves: suspense, got-me-books

I didn't pay any attention to this book, until I heard about the movie that Tom Hanks was doing. Well, I love Tom Hanks and I'll go see anything he's in (as long as it's not rated R). Well, the closer the movie release came, the more buzz it got and I think my mom had bought the book. I decided to read the book, before I saw the movie and, since I was bound and determined to see the movie on opening day, I literally only had a day or two to read it. This was while I was living at home and doing Grad School, so I took one entire day off and just sat and read the book. I remember that my Dad and Grandma B. were going to lunch and invited me, but of course, I couldn't put the book down, so I took it with me and read it in the car. When we got to A&W, they practically had to drag the book out of my hands, so I could eat. I snarfed down that food so fast! Anyway, long story short, I finished the book that night and went and saw the movie the next afternoon. I loved both, even though they're different (I even made a list comparing the two, and I still have it somewhere...)
