What's Eating Gilbert Grape - Peter Hedges - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of What's Eating Gilbert Grape:

The life and angst of a small town stockboy.

My favorite Peter Hedges quote from the book:

"Smiles and friendly nods are like fabric softeners for the face."

Questions to ponder while reading What's Eating Gilbert Grape:

Are you living the life you want to be?

How do you cope with depression?

My review of the book:

I totally got Gilbert.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

A good book to read, even if you saw the movie, and, it's a good movie to see, even if you have read the book. (Johnny Depp and Leonardo Dicaprio do well, but then both are very good actors)
