Last week I complained that I was not enjoying The Chamber. Well, I finished it. It’s not terrible, but definitely not worth two weeks of car time to get through. The main character is as dull as particle board, though some of the peripheral characters are interesting.

So Sunday I watched the movie starring Chris O’Donnell and Gene Hackman.

The movie made me realize that there were quite a few things about the book that I didn’t realize that I liked (or at least refrained from actively disliking). Every time I was confronted with hamfisted, high-horse sermonizing or adults engaging in toddler temper-tandrums unsuccessfully disguised as drama, I realized “Hey, that wasn’t in the book!”

    Yeah, I agree. The chamber is not the best of his novels.
