  1. Foolish Lego says:

    I always thought “the running man” was a movie with Schwarzenegger. Not running around the world, but running in a sort of maze as part of a game-show. Never knew there was another movie… let alone a book.

  2. I too know the movie but have never read the book. Is the book worth reading?
