Welcome! If you’ve found this page, that probably means you’ve purchased the 10th anniversary hardcover edition, or perhaps someone who did sent you this link. Or you’re just a good internet sleuth. Whatever the reason, welcome!
You may want to read this blog post on the differences between screenwriting and prose. Or, if you’re ready to jump right in, feel free. The format should be made obvious by context.
Because this is an interactive story, I’m going to offer you a choice. Do you want to read an early draft? If so, you’ll see dramatic differences between this version of the screenplay and the book we all know and love. Or do you want to see the final draft, where I pulled most of the “city path” storyline with Cooper and the gang?
Here we have a draft dated 20 October 2009, where even some character names are different.
And then, of course, there’s the final draft dated 1 December 2010. There will, of course, still be differences in the book. Enjoy!
