SamIam, after I was halfway through What's Eating Gilbert Grape, I realized that the title doesn't have a question mark at the end of it. The book isn't asking a question. It lists the things that are eating Gilbert.

I'm not an English teacher but that thought made a slight change to the way I thought about both the book and the movie.

I also found this to be an interesting observation. Thanks for pointing this out.

I totally missed that. :dunce:
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.
