    The book was a great read, even though the Boston Globe claims it belongs in the fiction category.

    I'll believe that. Book just too outlandish to be real.

    I don't know, there's so much detail in there, there's no way it could be made up. Kind of like "A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey.

    Book is awesome, and completely true. Movie of course doesn't follow it to the letter, but it's still OK.

    Concur with the book .... a great read.

    Movie is OK, something worth giving a glance ... on Kate Bosworth alone.

    About 3/4 of the way in it strayed into such absurdity I almost quit reading. I enjoyed it up until then, though.

    You gave me a heart attack. I'm not bad, I'm just drawn this way.

    Always hit on soft 16, trust me.

    Great movie, better book.
