The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Other Pieces by James Thurber | LibraryThing
Last weekend, I finally saw the film based on the short story “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.” Even though I hadn’t touched Thurber’s work since junior high, I could see the film adaptation was updated (probably for relevance). Also, there seemed to be a few other details changed. Still and all, films often revive interest in books. I believe this is just the case with “Walter Mitty.”
So, did the film do the story justice? Let me know!

I am almost through Season 1 of the TV adaptation of this series. While I’ve read other works by Debbie Macomber, I’ve yet to read her Cedar Cove books.
