A Walk In The Woods – The Book.

Tammy has this fascinating post on Old Men up in her blog which is worth a read and even more interesting are the comments and responses from her to them.

I had commented there – “Here is another old man appreciating what you say about old men though I may not be as rugged as Redford and Nolte! Neither Blu Ray nor DVD has been released yet, but I intend reading the book first. It will of course go to the back of the list of books to be read!” and she had responded in her inimitable and typical style with:

“LOL!!!
there you are you old rascal. shamed into it! LOL.
all is right in my world now.
i am also going to read the book.

I sent for the book and it arrived in two days’ time. Since I had read the author’s two earlier books I was curious as to what he had written that could have persuaded someone to make a film of it and so, instead of shoving it to the back of the list of “To Be Read” books, I commenced reading it immediately and finished reading it yesterday.

Now I am more than eager to watch the movie because the book is a travlogue though quite typically funny and engaging. The role played by Nick Nolte is a very small one in the book and I am curious as to how his role could have been stretched.

This ofcourse led me back to my experience with Wild and I wonder if something like this or completely different will be the result of the making of the film version.

I can’t wait to see the film.

    1. I have read that book and found it less interesting than his travelogues. It certainly explains a great many mysteries for a non scientist like me, but does not entertain!

  1. oh rummy.
    thanks for the mention!
    i’m late to this party.
    out enjoying the LAST of the heavenly cool days for awhile.
    heat back up to almost 32 C… 90 F here the next few days. good grief.
    BUT…
    the marine read the book when it first came out.
    and said the movie was a little different. they had to change up a little of it… just to fit it into the scope of a motion picture time frame.
    but not enough to make you disappointed.
    i think you will enjoy it when you finally see it!
