Yeah, it’s definitely a slow read at first (I was expecting the “OMG look at my 741541541 guns!”) But was very informative and realistic. As for the movie, I’m still up in the air. I’m not a huge Brad Pitt fan.
I totally feel you on that. But the idea of it being made into a movie makes me squee. I’ve read promises that it’ll stay true to the book, so fingers crossed!
