While the film, The Express was very good, it like most movies from books does not do the book justice. I noticed how Hollywood took out how religious Ernie Davis was. This is a great book about a terrific young man. This book will inspire you, make you want to cherish your time on Earth, and it will also make you wonder why did this have to happen. However, be prepared to be sad, but at the same time, you will be proud of this young man, Ernie Davis.

The book The Express is about Ernie Davis. He played football for Syracuse and was an athlete from Elmira. Before his first game in the Nfl he died of Leukemia.The author is trying to teach us about a good man and a great athlete. This book would appeal to the Civil Rights because he was the 1st black to win the Heisman Trophy. This book is affected me because He showed people that anything is possible. My opinion has changed about this book because I thought it was just about an athlete, but it is way more then that. He was also a great man. If you like sports book, this one is for you. As you read, my adivce to you is keep your tears.
