5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, amazing, can't put it down!, 10 Nov 2005
This review is from: Midnight Express (Paperback)
If you have seen the film and are thinking of reading the book, then go for it. It won't spoil the film for you. The book is slightly different, more powerful than the book in some ways and the ending is different.
If you have not yet seen the film and are about to read the book STOP right now. Watch the film first! Because if you dont you may not like the film as much and that would be a shame!
This amazing story tells the 4 years of Hell Billy Hayes had to endure for trying to smuggle marijuana from Turkey to the USA. The prison of Ankara is the worst place on earth for Billy and his inmates. and when you think it's tough, it gets tougher.
Great story, great reading, a must read if you enjoy gripping true life stories!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but..., 26 Sep 2004
This review is from: White Oleander [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
Another attempt at reproducing a book into a film. Michelle Pfeiffer is brilliant and her co star Amy Aquino makes a believable Astrid. But there is so much in the book that is missing in the film. My advice... watch the film, then read the book! Otherwise you will hate the film if you've read the book first!
