Review: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

5 Stars

by: James Thurber
Genre: Humor

As I was looking for a new book to read, I came across THE SECRET LIFE of WALTER MITTY. I had heard of it before. In fact, I have seen the original movie version made in 1947, starring Danny Kaye. And, I’m given to understand there is a newer version starring Ben Stilled.

Since I usually prefer to read stories before they’ve been made into movies–even though I had seen the Danny Kate movie–I thought, “this will be a great book to choose this time”.

After buying the book for only ¢99, I was tickled to get started. Imagine my surprise to discover that it was only 15 pages long. Lol. I had not realized it was a short story.

It was actually a cute story. I enjoyed it. At this point, because I’ve read the “book” and enjoyed it so much, I think I’m going to have to watch both movie versions. Just for the fun of it.

"I'd like to think of myself as a blended mix of Southern charm and humor. What I really am is a hot mess of sin and sass. Jesus loves me either way."
