I bought this to read before watching the Tom Cruise movie that was made from it. In the end I read about half of it last year and then set it down. I ended up watching the movie and then re-starting the book, which I've now read.

It's a quick read and pacy. It's not overly sophisticated but it has a consistent tone that fits its subject matter. I won't bore you with the differences between the movie and the book except to say if you've
