When I saw this in my People magazine a few weeks ago, I couldn’t believe 25 years had passed since this movie came out. It was a favorite of mine as well as my boys. I’d read the book years before the movie came out and both my boys read the book first. It was my little way of getting them to read a book. They couldn’t see the movie until they read the book because I felt books were generally better than the movie. They may say now they “faked” reading but I did my best to ask them questions that I thought were hard.
I feel reading is so important and without it in my life, I’m not sure what I would do. If I only have half a dozen books on hand that I haven’t read, I start feeling nervous. Neither one of my kids read books now. I wish they did. It’s fun to read a book and talk to someone about it. I remember when we would all read Stephen King together. We had so much fun talking about what we were reading.
If you’ve never seen this movie or read the book. I highly recommend it. If you’ve seen the movie, watch it again. I did and I really enjoyed it. These actors were all so young and so was I when I saw it the first time around.
