A tale of mythic proportions,
This review is from: Big Fish (Paperback)
I bought this because I saw the film and loved it. The book is obviously very similar to the film but as is usual with books made into films has a lot of detail, which sets it apart and in some ways makes it more enjoyable. The book is a story told by a man about his father's life and death, his father is a man who lived his life telling stories and jokes, some of them true, some of them untrue, some of them debateable! It's a beautiful story, funny, sad, heart-warming and very, very creative. I read the book easily in a couple of days and I loved it! Big Fish, to me, is like a fairy tale but for adults.
