Up in the Air by Walter Kirn
I probably should not have read this book while traveling.
1.) It is not a beach read.
2.) Flying while reading about how traveling is making a man lose his mind seems twisted.
3.) The whole thing just feels WRONG.
Just from watching the previews, I am pretty sure the movie is only loosely based on the book. I saw the movie described as a comedy-drama, but there is not much overt humor in the book. Road warriors, my fervent wish for you is that you are nothing like Ryan Bingham.
Thanks to Cal for passing this one along.
