The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood is so far the best book this reviewer has read this year. Charlie St. Cloud was very close to his younger brother, Sam. The two were born out of wedlock, with different fathers, but with the love of their mother and a very strong brotherly bond, Sam and Charlie had a good life and were the best of friends.
Cloud " was first released in , he wasn't really sure anyone aside from immediate family would read it. He did not expect to see his story come to life on the big screen. But fast forward six years -- and that is exactly what Sherwood is now enjoying with the film "Charlie St. Could," which came out nationwide last Friday. In today's Conversation, Diane Sawyer talks with Sherwood about what it feels like to have his book turned into a major motion picture. Sherwood says that when he was writing the book, he never imagined a heart-throb like Zac Efron playing Charlie — but once filming was underway it all came together for him. The movie opened to mixed reviews , and did not have the strongest weekend at the box office, but for Sherwood, seeing his words come to life was an entirely positive experience that, he says, left him wanting to hug every person on the set.
