Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would have made it longer, and a little more suspenseful.
Any additional comments?
It wasnt a bad listen at all. There just could have been a lot more to it. I think I expected something a little longer and suspenseful because of the movie. Still, as usual, the book was better.

Who convinced the author to "update" this 1970s novel? It's not just that Vietnam becomes Iraq and the characters trade Cokes for Starbucks. References to contemporary technology are randomly inserted, and sloppily, too: giving the characters cell phones simply makes several plot points unravel. It's all a mess -- from the strange mixture of 70s and millennial slang to the bizarre juxtaposition of text messages, GPS and a throw-back communal hall phone. When I saw that this book was unabridged, my assumption was that I was getting an intact vintage novel -- not something dumbed down for a world that can't fathom life untethered from a cell phone.
