On the day my daughter my only child was born, I waited in front of the delivery room I got nervous when the doctor went out the first time She told me that m I bought this novel based on my enjoyment of the Tim Burton film, but was surprised at how slender it was considering the vast amount of material the film got through Once I started to read Wallace s novel, it became obvious why The film was greatly padded out, using the material from the book as a backbone the book reads like a collection of concept notes for the film than a full novel The film also made several changes in Edward Bloom s character making him likeable , for example, in the novel, it is confirmed that Bloom did have an affair, where the film had the woman deny that there was any infidelity despite her attempts to seduce him Wallace s choppy, flitting style, like flicking distractedly through various TV channels all showing different episodes of the same vast biography, also makes it hard to foster a bond with any of the characters and the I m not a big fan of magical realism, but if it s done well, by an author who can make you believe in anything, just by the quality of his writing, it can be something special Big Fish did that for me I was under Daniel Wallace s spell from the first word I guess a lot of people feel that way, because it has been turned into a film and a Broadway production.

A book I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend I watched the movie many years ago, and liked it albeit I now only have very vague memories of it The film adaptation diverged in some ways from the book, while still keeping the core concepts, concepts I enjoyed both watching and reading about This story is about a son coming to terms with the inevitable death of his sick father as well as trying to come to terms with the mythic life of the same man and trying to make sense of who exactly is his father.
It s a testament to the book s writing that despite me ultimately disliking the father, I was still wholly interested and invested in the father son relationship, that I could even understand the sort of strained, frustrated affection the son had for this flawed man who Big Fish A Novel of Mythic Proportions, Daniel WallaceBig Fish A Novel of Mythic Proportions is a 1998 novel by Daniel Wallace It was adapted into a film, Big Fish, in 2003 by Tim Burton A musical adaptation starring Norbert Leo Butz premiered in Chicago in April 2013 A young man William Bloom , at the deathbed of his father Edward Bloom , tries to reconcile his memories of his dad with the person he really is Whereas he always saw his father as an irresponsible liar, he comes to understand his dad s exaggerations and their roots in reality The various stories are Will s retelling of tales that Edward has told about his life The My Father s Death Take chapters are William planning out his final conversation with his father in his head and how it will go, so that when the actual conversation takes place, he will be abl
