this is an ok read,as far as it goes.with such a great story line it's a pity the book is a little flat,each time you think it will pick up .it seems to come to a standstill,if you have seen the film which is more likely.it's a disppointment,and it stops abruptly,with no decent ending,or finding out his life after crime.the film is 100% better.nothing more to say.

The made for TV movie of this story makes it a comedy. It is anything but that. It is a mystery and a suspense story. I couldn't put it down.

Catch Me If You Can
Super read! I saw the movie first and was then so curious to know the "whole" story, I bought the book. No regrets. As good as the movie is, the book is better because of the additional detail. If I didn't know this was a true story, I wouldn't believe it! What an audacious, clever, disarming rogue!! It's a fun book that's quick to read as well -- enjoy!
