Saving Private Ryan is a brilliant read and is basically like the film, but with more action sequences and more details in the battles and the events in the book.
Very exciting all the way through and people who loved the film will definately love this! Thanks for reading the Review!
(P.S. if you like action and adventure books, you'll love Ice Station by Matthew Reilly, i have written a review on it, if you wanna take the time to read it, that would be cool!)
As a piece of writing it is exceedingly good, the problem lies in the characters, none are fleshed out, details of age and where they are from is not enough, to care about characters you have to KNOW them, therefore no-one cares about what happens to these guys, they are all very two dimensional.
However the technical detail, the impact of battle cannot be faulted, but by the end I just wondered if I cared, I didn't!
If you want to have a written version of the film OK, if you want a good book... I'd recommend you saved your money and rented the film.
