I wanted to do a Print vs. Film for this, I really really did. I love comparing books and movies, and that was the whole reason I’d even read Shutter Island to begin with. A friend of mine forced me to watch the movie quite a while back (to be honest, I had no interest in it when it came out), and immediately after I decided to read the book. Some of you may even remember a post I did a while back involving it.
Now I’m sure you’re astute enough to figure out why I can’t compare the two, but for the sake of stating the obvious, I’ll tell you: They’re nearly identical. There are hardly any changes between the two, and trying to compare them would be like trying to compare white and ivory. Wait, those are different?
Back in February I went on a trip to Toronto with a friend. I had a blast—Toronto is amazing! Loved everything about it, except for the constant blaring of car horns every time I was outside. Seriously, just yell or flip people off or something! Oh, and I even found a phone booth in a restaurant while I was there.
See? Isn’t it awesome?
The biggest downside was that Toronto is quite a long drive from here. 4-6 hours unable to charge any electronics, unable to use my cell, unable to take a nap because my friend would surely wake me… Wait! I could read!
And that was all the reasoning I needed to buy Noah Chinn’s newer work, Trooper #4.
