    Thank you for this thread which inspired me to read the book instead of watch the movie. For some reason I wanted to know the story but not watch it.

    I sensed from one of the comments here that Gary was omitted from the film. That's surprising since the dynamic of believers/nonbelievers would be and was important to such a story.

    I'm glad to be getting back here and reading, although I'm not commenting much yet. I suffered two heart attacks on Christmas Eve and underwent triple bypass surgery on 12/27. I was just discharged from hospital and am in a skilled nursing facility for another couple of weeks.

    Thanx. I don't have the energy for a fight right now, although I was pleased to have found a thread in which you were dissatisfied in order to post some praise for something! You know I love you, right?

    Oh my! What a scare! I haven't been commenting much myself, but I have been checking in and noticed you haven't been around. I'm glad you're on the mend and hoping you have a smooth recovery.

    Ultimately I didn't like the movie, but I kind of want to give the book a shot. I feel it was very over-hyped with people from work. I suppose they know I'm a horror movie fan, and maybe wanna relate to it a bit, so I'll give them that.

    That shit is actually scary.
    I'm glad you are better enough to be discharged, and I hope it all keeps getting better for you.

    I enjoyed the book. It's not something I would normally pick up, but with all the movie hype and me with no interest but wanting to follow the conversation, reading the book was perfect. I've read a few articles about the movie, including one which explained some differences between the book and the movie, and I believe the book was the right choice for me.

    Thank you. It's scarier looking back on it than it seemed at the time. It was all so surreal Christmas Eve and the following couple of weeks.

    I just got home and I am sooooo happy right now. There's no place like home!
