If you enjoyed the theme of a movie you might like to try a book with a similar theme. If you enjoyed the movie 'Gravity' you might like to try the novel 'The Explorer' by James Smythe, where the least experienced member of a crew of astronauts is left stranded in space. If you enjoyed the movie 'Midnight in Paris', 'The Paris Wife' is also a fictional exploration of Ernest Hemingway's marriage to his first wife Hadley Richardson. The movie 'Up' is similar to 'The Hundred-year-old-man who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared' -a tale of an old man on a grand adventure. If you enjoyed the movie 'Lost in Translation' - try Ruth Ozeki's novel 'A Tale for the Time Being'. Long before the movie 'Inception' asked the question, What is reality? Philip K. Dick wrote 'Ubik'. Impressed by Indiana Jones from 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'? -- then meet Painter Crowe, action hero and star of James Rollin's SIGMA Force novels, in his most recent adventure 'The 6th Extinction'
