"Miracle On 34th Street" Book

I was curioius if anyone ever read the book Miracle On 34th Street, and if it is;

a. better than the movie

b. different than the movie

c. worth buying

I have thought about buying it for a few years now, I just worry I will be disappointed by it, just looking for some opinions to help sway me.

Yes---it differs from the movie in some respects, but it gives you a few more details about Kris's life and background. Some episodes differ from the film and there are some scenes that aren't in the film, but it has a charm all its own. The book was written by the man who first conceived of the story and collaborated on the screenplay, so it is its own story, not just a retelling of the movie. I recommend it. I don't think it would disappoint you.

I LOVE the book and highly recommend it as a must have! To me, it is better than either movie, and I love both of those, too.

I finished reading MO34thS last night, I loved it! It definitely had some differences than the movie, but it was well worth it. It made me have the same warmth the movie does. I would have liked to see some of the scenes from the book played out in the movie but the book was great.
