It’s rare instances that make me utter these words but it stands true for Brokeback Mountain, the adaptation was better than the book.

I have of course watched the movie and have considered it as one of Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger’ finest performances, but I had not picked up the book until now and somehow not for a minute could I find myself deviating from the above bolded statement.

Somehow the rawness and the beauty of Proulx’ written word just gains a new depth in the Ang Lee directed classic.
