Less than 11 pages! I think it should be noted before buying. Waste of money.

Being familiar with the film adaptation of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, I expected much more from this purchase. Very, very short. Only 8 pages were actual story. The rest is an introduction by the author's daughter and a quick bio of the author. Total of 15 pages! This is not noted in the description of the book by Barnes and Noble.Was this review helpful?

Meet Walter Mitty.
He's a Husband.
He's a Captain of a Navy ship
He's a toughest man on the trial
He's the man who can a woman from distress and is a hero to all man kind.
He's also worrying his wife, his co-workers, his boss and his shrink.
Walter Mitty has dreams. Dreams of being a hero. But he's not dreaming them in bed, like everyone else is.
He's dreaming these events while driving, while shopping, talking to his wife, walking down the street. He "sees" himself as a
hero to everyone, but doesn't really do anything about it. He's just your average Joe that is taking his wife to get her hair done.
And while she is getting her hair done, he runs errands. But everyday life, everything that we see, feel, touch, hear generates
this scene in his head where he is the hero to the story and he's living it right then and there!! While everyone looks at him like
he's weird, he doesn't see what wrong with this!!
As a writer I was thrilled that I am not the only person that this is happening too!!! I can't tell you how many times I will be sitting
at the Library that I work at and there will be an event that will take place, or someone says something to me and it triggers a
scene playing in my head and I'm living that story out (in my head of course). I am a writer and I am always getting scenarios
playing out in my head that sometimes leave me speechless until I am writing that out in my laptop. Sometimes I talk out loud
the scenes but hey, I'm a writer it's allowed. (I think....)
