I just adore this book. I like the way the story is delivered to you. I will agree the first listen it was a little slow to get into, but that is because you land right in a battle scenery. I have read this .... sorry listen to this book a couple of time. I do skip to certain parts sometimes. If you like the style of WWZ you will like. there are parts that i was glued to & even thought i was there. I loved the delivery of the story. The only problem i can see it not with the book or story. It will be with the movie that is set to come out, now granted this will make an awesome movie. However, it is not a family movie(which you know they will make) Some scenes in this book are a little graphic & i don't see how you could film them and not be "R" or even NC-17.
I would like to thank Mr. Wilson for now making me a little edge on Zero Hour a/k/a Thanksgiving Day.. 8-)
Ok, so I saw the movie first. I'm a sucker for mythology. It was pretty good. Then I read the book....Then I re watched the movies I know people say this all the time. But the book is Sooo much better. I liked what they did in the movie but damn. They left out a Lot of cool parts from the book in the movie. in the move the kid was great, i can't wait to see him in the other chapters in the story. Don't get me wrong i liked them both, i just have to separate them from each other. However the book was better.
Don't get me wrong I love the Will Smith version of the movie. But this book is so much better & i wish they would make a version like this.
