The truth is, this is a decent book. The reality is, the movie is better. How that happened I have no idea. ( )

I can definitely see why some would absolutely love this book. But I think that same reason might be the reason why I wasn't able to get into it very much. The author loved to side track and add in little side quips that I didn't find necessary.

Sometimes it was hard to tell with the writing style whether the book was meant to be funny or whether it was meant to be adventuresome and an edge of your seat thriller. The "funny" stuff I found to be more annoying than anything and wanted more of the thriller aspect. Then again, I'm probably one of the worst people to ask to review this book because I like reading "Who done it" books with thrills and chills. (So if you like books like I've been previously describing like The Princess Bride, it might be right up your alley.

I really struggled through finishing this book and wouldn't let myself start another one because I was so afraid that I wouldn't finish this one if I began another. ( )

Easily, one of the best books I've ever read in my whole life, I never wanted it to end (but it did :( ) ( )

I think I'd actually give it 3.5 stars. There are some things I really loved and enjoyed about this book. Including Goldman's 100% commitment to the style and the reality he creates for the book. Also, the fact that he does include true facts, real people, etc. can cause a reader to pause to wonder if maybe this slightly absurd thing maybe isn't that absurd after all? Getting to spend time in that kind of world was wonderful.

The movie based off this book is probably the most closely followed adaptation I personally have ever seen. So as someone who grew up watching the movie, I could so often very clearly hear the characters voices reading their lines and see them move in my mind's eye. In addition, readers get to know some of the characters in more detail than the movie is able to get into, especially for hearing about events that happened to characters before the events of the book.

Even though I said I appreciated his commitment to the style he decided to tell this story in, as the book continued, his asides did start to become a bit long winded feeling and I wanted them to finish up so I could get back to 'the story.' Another thing I didn't quite like was how he talked about those he determined were fat. In addition, a lot of the characters aren't particularly believable. But, I also feel that is part of the point so I personally didn't lower my rating of the book because of this, though I think it might for some readers. ( )

For years now I have been under the impression that I read this book back in the 1980s. Feeling the need to read a more cheerful book recently, I checked this one out of the Amazon Prime lending library. It only took my a few sentences to realize that I have NOT read this before! Of course I have seen the movie adaptation several times but apparently never read the book.

While the movie adaptation preserved the basic plot intact, the original book does much more with the 'book within a book' aspect which added to the humor considerably. ( )

The book is clearly a witty, affectionate send-up of the adventure-yarn form, which Goldman obviously loves and knows how to manipulate with enormous skill.

These are the type of stories I love to read. I hope I can see your work in NovelStar. There are also a lot of talented writers in that platform. You may check their group on Facebook.
