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

How do you cope with depression?
My thoughts about 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)
