This book was written many years ago when fod on the table was paramount. It was written by DK but he was given a basic plot line and a limited number of pages. If I am not mistaken, DK was the first to write this plot. The movie is okay but character development was weaker.

This is short compact book, not at all what we're used to from DK. Really didn't care for the book too much. I think I will have to find the movie that was made from it and see how that went.

This book was ok. It was too short to be a very good book but just long enough to get to know the characters. The plot has been done before but I like how Dean did it. Pick it up if you have nothing else to read right now.
