    They definitely dumbed it down for the kids, I think it would have done just as well if they stuck more to the source material. But such is the way of most movie adaptations.
    They're worth picking up.

    The new Dune adaptation should be interesting

    Currently listening to Year One by Nora Roberts, it's the same theme as The Stand by Stephen King but King's writing is lightyears ahead. I have been hesitant to listen to Nora Roberts as I only remembered her as a romance novelist.

    I now have logged 2 months, 11 days, 17 hours and 5 minutes on Audible. I'm curious to see what other guys have that use it

    I read “Papillon” as a kid and have seen the original movie a dozen times. A great story that I’m looking forward to again

    Beyond textbooks, I just finished reading "Can't Hurt Me" by David Goggins and would absolutely recommend it. I have "The Feather Thief," "Ghost Wars," and MJ and Tiger Woods bios queued up. I've been on a big non-fiction kick.

    Brandon Sanderson is legit, and I'm all about a 40 hour book for 12 bucks.
