I'm not finished yet either Pru. Although I find it kind of scary that this was supposed to be set in the early 2000s and the issues with poverty, corrupt government and trying to keep the poor under educated and dependent on the system. We don't have the "flying" cars they describe either. Although sadly the pollution issue is still very real (I get a sense this was written during the energy crisis of the '70s). Sad but I can see where some of this could become reality. We already have a whole slew of "warrior" shows that keep coming and going for prize money, how long before it becomes acceptable to escalate to something like the Running Man? (sorry some of the newer movies like "The Purge" really make me question what we as humans are doing besides destroying our planet and it seems we have come to a point where life doesn't mean anything, people are killed over "sales" or things).

I don't remember much about the movie but now want to watch it again because my memory is not coming up with any of what is being described in the book. I do remember that Richard Dawson was the show host though....LOL.

Wow that book ended abruptly. Good for a quiet day of reading!

Curious, do you guys like the book or the movie based on the book more? I like them both but I find it hard to truly compare them as they are very different stories. With characters of the same name

It took me more then 30 years to find myself buried under everyone else's expectations, and I will never again let another person tell me who I am not.

I actually like the movie. Just watched it again not long ago.. It is amusing. don’t remember the book very well if at all.. Will be nice to read it again and compare the massive differences between the book and its adaption. Starting with page one, family vs helicopter!

Ok, my bad. I totally forgot it was the first of the month and we had a new book to head up for reading. Guess I got a little too excited about a book sale. lol It has been some time since I read this book and I didn't remember much about it until I got into it again. Not bad, a decent ending as well. What are your thoughts?
