I can hardly believe I am writing a review for this book other than the fact it is a book that a movie is based upon it is so far removed from my usual scope of interest. I loved it! I bought my paperback copy at my local library for 50 cent for future reading you know one of those days. Well I finished The Caine Mutiny and decided to leaf through it and I couldn't put it down. It's just masterful storytelling amid murder, mayhem, violence, love, sex, politics, Hollywood, crime and what binds us all together family. It is an excellent book. I have not seen the movie. I avoid it like the plague you know not for me. I am not sure if I would like to see it fleshed out. I honestly don't know if the story translates well to the screen and I know only watching it would tell me but already what little I've seen -like the daughter's wedding there's no cat on the Don's lap while he is granting people audience and it doesn't describe the Don as played by Marlon Brando with those puffy cheeks. If you don't think the movie is for you read this book it is a fine story. I highly recommend it.
