Walter Mitty is a regular chap who likes to day dream a few times a day; his adventurous second life is rich and riveting and so often interrupted by his whiny wife and life’s demands. Without worry he’s able to perform his tasks while shuffling his head dreams as if one was shuffling his ipod or playlist walking down a crowded street or working away on their computer with their head in better places. Mitty does his best to balance his wonderful imagination with the daily grind, even if his life isn’t too hard, his mental happy trips seem physical to his wife who is on a whole other plane ready to take his temperature. This is a delightful story that can be read and re-read in a short amount of time and it will always be delicious and imaginative.

As I was looking for a new book to read, I came across THE SECRET LIFE of WALTER MITTY. I had heard of it before. In fact, I have seen the original movie version made in 1947, starring Danny Kaye. And, I'm given to understand there is a newer version starring Ben Stilled.
Since I usually prefer to read stories before they've been made into movies--even though I had seen the Danny Kate movie--I thought, "this will be a great book to choose this time".
After buying the book for only ¢99, I was tickled to get started. Imagine my surprise to discover that it was only 15 pages long. Lol. I had not realized it was a short story.
It was actually a cute story. I enjoyed it. At this point, because I've read the "book" and enjoyed it so much, I think I'm going to have to watch both movie versions. Just for the fun of it.
It's a good short story and after seeing two movies based on it, it's still better to use your own imagination. Like folks always say, the book is better than the movie.
Enjoy an old classic from time to time, and this is a good one.
Of course, much of what Walter does is a fantastic exaggeration. But it's very entertaining. I highly recommend the movie.
