in the middle of "The Body" aka Stand by me, I must say I am really enjoying this story, for the most part it is pretty much like the movie, as I continue to read I have stumbled upon a "side story" that Gordon Lachance writes as an adult. Confused at first but it gives you insight on what the character felt. I only say this because I assume that (just like the movie) the "Gordy" character is writing the story as an adult.
Aside from thinking that I read slow I really haven't had any difficulties. It helps that both of my books (so far) were also movies with narrators, so when I get bored I can always imagine Richard Dreyfus is speaking the words. Almost at the 12 hour mark GO GO GO!!
