My daughter concurs BB. But she watched the movie for free and then said - makes sense he'd have to make shit up to protect his psyche from what really happened.
That's a comment I've seen made about survivors of atrocities, and it fits here.
I'm reading The Martian by Andy Weir - guy gets abandoned by his crew so he's alone until next mission - 4 years - a survival story, so far I'm totally intrigued, but if you hate specs on how things work you wouldn't like it.
I don't like science fiction, that alone would turn me off. However, I do like reading about mechanical specs and details in cars and trucks.
Anytime there's sci-fi on the telly, I change channels right away. Ditto for all that stupid nonsensical vampire and zombie trash that plagues the airwaves nowadays.
I especially hate anything related to video games, iPads, cellphones, BlackBerries, and other technical garbage.
I wouldn't read Marcel Proust if his book was the last bound edition on Planet Earth.
I have the world's smallest tolerance for boredom. I think people who bore others should be put in prison for life.
I very much doubt I will watch the movie version of this book - my standards are higher than this.
