‘Marathon Man’ by William Goldman

‘Well Paced, Dramatic, Intense’
Score: 5/5

I thoroughly enjoyed this and raced through it very quickly.

I wondered how it would compare to the film, with its intense ‘Is it safe?’ scene, but it held up very well. The film is good, the book is different but also good.

As is often the case, the book has a bit more depth to it than the film, and a bit more backstory to ground some of the characters. The book came first but the film was quite true to the book’s story.

(As a side note, it’s worth watching the film if you haven’t already. I was surprised at a few people I mentioned it to who hadn’t seen it.)
