Saw the movie some last Friday [the 17th] and been wanting to write a review ever since. Don't have much time, so here's just a short pseudo-review.
I really want to read this book soon. It's been on my list for far too long. But I got a chance to see the movie first. It's really good, with a great cast [Jim Caviezel, Richard Harris, and a lot of other good actors that I don't recognize]. I really like the story, which I hear is different from the book. This books seems to be the inspiration for The Shawshank Redemption. A lot more unorganized thoughts moving around in my head right now, so all I can say is I better get a copy of the book soon.
