Movie or TV Productions
This low-budget 1983 adaptation has some interesting casting: the older brother from E.T., Miranda from Sex and the City, and Cormier itself. But that's about all it has going for it.
A beloved author never really dies because his works live on. Cormier's New York Times obituary sure makes that clear.
This interview took place shortly before the author passed away. In it he confronts many of the criticisms of his works.
Bet you're glad we only linked you to part one. Not quite as thrilling as the book.
This woman knows more about Robert Cormier than anyone... including Shmoop, if you can believe that.
A seriously cool podcast devoted to stories about people, like Adam, with not-quite-right memories.
Ah, New England. Luckily it wasn't snowing when Adam was biking through.
Apparently he knew about hipster glasses long before they were ironic.
Looks like a WWII documentary (if only it were).
Shmoop likes this one the best – what do you think?
The only one without a bike, and it gives Adam a distinct face. What is this guy, eight years old? We think some things should be left to the imagination...
Maybe this is why they cast the guy from E.T. in the movie.
