*Kristen's Pick*

I know you have seen the movie, and loved it, (who didn’t love it?) but I can’t stress enough that you should also read this book. Read it for the hilarious ‘asides’ where Goldman takes you on an up close and personal tour of both his child and adulthood. Read it for the introduction, a beautiful and touching piece of writing (and includes juicy tidbits about making the movie). Read it for the “Buttercups Baby” explanation. Especially the conversation Goldman has with Stephen King (they are friends and have a sort of mutual admiration society going, a fact that never fails to delight me). The first line of the original text reads “This is my favorite book in all the world” and I couldn’t agree more.

So, what do you think?
