Gone Baby Gone – Book vs Movie

by

When I see a movie I really like, and then learn that it is based on a book. Well, then I have to immediately go read the book ASAP.

This is what happened when I saw the excellent Gone Baby Gone on Netflix. It stars Casey Affleck, Michelle Monaghan, and a whole slew of sublime secondary characters – Morgan Freeman, John Ashton, and Ed Harris. Harris especially is the selling point for me. I almost invariably watch and enjoy every movie of his.

Anyway, it was only after watching the movie that I came to know it was based on the book by Dennis Lehane.
