One of my favorite movies, in book form

I am a big fan of the Men In Black movies, and enjoyed listening to the book. Did the book come first, or the movie? I don't know, but my experience is that movies and books work hand in hand to enrich each other, and that is certainly true with the book.The book lacked some of the detail in the movie, but contained details not in the movie. Both book and movie are full of great humor, and is all the funnier if you know anything about the history of Ufology, so you know where the author/screenwriters got their material--Men in Black is a hilarious spoof based on real life.

Regarding the star point system, I am often not sure how to use it. Compared to Tolstoy or Shakespeare, this is just a popular novel, deserving perhaps a 3, but in it's own genre of humor, popular books, etc., it's definitely a 5. The performance was really well done overall, but I found a glitch or two that kept it from being perfect, hence only 4 stars. But who cares! It's still plenty good enough for a fun read.
