Books are better than movies - every time. If the Cowboys & Aliens movie is as good as the trailers look, this book should be awesome.

I loved Ms. Vinge's post. She is welcome as well, though she'll have to put up with me staring at Mr. Craig while we have tea and talk about books.

Professor Morrow
66. Jessica Qualls
Cant goto the movies for a while so it would be totally awesome to read the book. :)
Professor Morrow
67. mutantalbinocrocodile
Can't help but think this might be a case of the novelization being better than the movie. (Can you say Phantom Menace??) The movie looks fun. . .but maybe the kind of fun where you have to be drunk. Some things just don't come off tonally on the screen, like deadpan with a mostly American cast.

I would love to read this book. I can't wait to see the movie. I'm a writer myself, and the combination of action and a paranormal element in this has me really excited. Now that I'm working on the screenplay for my book and hoping to get it turned into a movie, I'm really interested in the book to movie process.
