I don't even remember if I did or didn't. I think my teacher just recommended it to us like crazy, but in my particular class, we never actually read it. Never bothered getting myself interested in it at all though so can't say what I really think.

Never read the book but know what it's about basically and from the trailer it looks like a movie I'd like

Leonardo dicaprio is always a plus. Not many actors better. Add Carey mulligan and tobey maguire and you have Peaked my interest

I remember this book from high school. I had no interest in it though, or any of the other books that were assigned before my senior yr, so my mind was elsewhere when we went over "The Great Gatsby" my junior yr lol. Going to give this another chance some time though.

As for the movie, you can never go wrong with films starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Great actor.

Dude, this was already made a movie, and a damn good one at that.

Stars Robert Redford, Mia Farrow, Burce Dern, Karen Black, etc.. It came out in 1974. Check it out, quality stuff.
