I haven't read Price of Freedom or even any of the excerpts yet. Although I do have my copy firmly in hand waiting for a schedule to appear. :cool:

Me too. Got the book. Now, finding a good, cool place to lay back and read it.

I am so glad I was here, read the book, read the tidbits, followed the discussion - it added a great deal to my experience watching the movie, even if the story was very different.

Exactly! I thought the same thing too. I was so glad that I knew the difference when he said that--which I only learned in the last month or so. But here's the question, did we learn that in OST or in The Price of Freedom?


It was a tidbit in OST. :lol:

Wow! What a ride!
