User Review  - samlives2 - LibraryThing

This is, of course, the novel version of the movie, but I still thought it should be a good read. The story was highly fast-paced and of course the plot was interesting, but the writing seemed lacking at parts. It's a good thing Spielberg does movies, not books. Read full review
