As a newspaper editor who examines millions of words of text each year, I give Banner in the Sky a solid five stars as the best I have read thus-far this year. It is funny how I, at age 58, had never heard of the book except through accidentally watching Third Man On The Mountain (Disney)on TV recently. The movie was astounding, among Disney's greatest work. I have always been a big Disney fan, too, and even wear a Mickey Mouse watch and wedding ring and did not know that movie existed.
Long story short, both are superb. The love interest in the movie is not in the book, which does not detract from it at all. In fact, both the book and the movie are must-see, must-read items for me. I will be re-reading the book and I have already in the past two months seen the movie 18 times.
