The book and the movie for Up in the Air are very different. I’d already seen the movie and really liked it, when I picked up the book. I really enjoyed the first parts of the book, or maybe I just liked thinking about George Clooney a lot. He played the main character in the movie and I imagined him in the book too. After a while, though, it became clear that the movie was better than the book, which is rarely the case. If you’re interested in this story, see the movie!
