James Thurber looks at some really interesting parts of human existence: our strange phrases, the odd thoughts that might pass through our minds, the stuff we tell each other about our days, and our darkest thoughts at the worse times in life. To call this dark comedy is perhaps too simple a category, but it is comedic in parts and I would recommend it, particularly to those who might take inspiration and make millions like those in Hollywood already have.
It is a sweet story of a man who could have been brilliant but never got the chance to be and lives in his fantasies whether that be as a lawyer, fighter pilot or doctor. It has the overriding message of don’t take life for granted; live everyday to the fullest and be the best you that you can be.
You can see why they took the premise of this story and turned it into a film. The short story does leave potential for growth and development.
It is a simple but sweet story about achieving ones potential.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by James Thurber is available now.
The author done a wonderful job of bringing daydreams to reality, I truly felt I was right in the action and then a few seconds later I would realise it's all the beautiful work of our imagination.
I hope this review has helped you, can you please rate it positively if you liked it as it really means a lot to me, Many Thanks for reading:)
