  1. I liked the movie better than the book. I have never seen the appeal of the story itself. Nothing really makes sense from the start, and the longer it goes on, the more stupid the characters act. This book says nothing about America to me. Actually, I think CHEATING is the main theme of the book, but nobody ever addresses that.

  2. Thanks for the comment! I have not read the book, but I would still be interested in doing it. Your reaction to the book reminds me of when I finally read “Catcher in the Rye”. That is interesting about your take on cheating in the book, as the movie didn’t represent that as the biggest issue. Perhaps that has more to do with the perception of cheating when the book was written versus when this movie was made.
