This was the first book by Warren Adler that I've ever read and I give it an A+! Although Mareena has seen the 1999 movie adaptation of this book - starring Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas - at least once with a friend of hers; she and I have only ever seen portions of the movie together. Maybe the next time it comes on television, we'll watch the entire movie.

Random Hearts (1999). About book: In a perfect world, people like Edward Davis and Vivien Simpson would never have met. He's a happily married man; an ambitious aide to an important Congressman who loves his wife. She's a happily married woman; a housewife with a young son and a dog who absolutely adores her lawyer husband. This was the first book by Warren Adler that I've ever read and I give it an A+! Although Mareena has seen the 1999 movie adaptation of this book - starring Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas - at least once with a friend of hers; she and I have only ever seen portions of the movie together. However, in my personal opinion, the book is better than the movie; so watching the movie isn't all that imperative to me.

Random Hearts is a 1984 novel by American author Warren Adler, who wrote the novel after being moved by the 1982 Air Florida Flight 90 disaster. In 1999, the novel was made into a motion picture directed by Sydney Pollack and starring Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas. Vivien Simpson, a housewife with a young son, and Edward Davis, an aide to a congressman, had never met before, but soon they would be inseparable.

In an ideal world, they would never have met. Vivien Simpson is a happy housewife with a young son who adores her successful lawyer husband. Edward Davis is an ambitious aide to an important Congressman who loves his wife. When an airplane crash brings about the discovery that their supposedly loving and now deceased spouses were involved in a deeply passionate love affair and possessed the same apartment key, they are devastated and baffled by the revelation. Determined to find the answers to their dilemma, they embark on a search for both the reasons for their spouse's infidelity and their place of assignation. In the process, they discover much about themselves and how the mysterious nature of love can render people too powerless to resist. Another classic love story that has achieved a worldwide audience.

Lately I seem to be foundering in books that are idea clones, reach a certain point, and then veer off in a new direction. The plotline in the last two has been lovers betraying their spouses, taking a vacation/trip together, and meeting accidental deaths en route. The betrayed characters then join forces to investigate the deaths and find themselves falling in love in the process. This version had the usual unusual plot twists, which the author then over explained: What they felt, when they started feeling it, why they felt they felt that way, etc., etc. To skip paragraphs could result in missing a plot twist, so I labored on reading, but found myself guessing when the book was written--a decade with no cell phones, characters having to look for a phone booth, airlines not requiring passenger ID for customers boarding Condorde jets for international flights, definitely a more innocent era--then having to go back and reread passages my eyes had read but my mind missed. This author overwrote, indulging in maximum verbosity almost to the point of spoiling his story line. And for that a two star penalty.

I purchased this book after seeing the movie. I enjoyed the movie very much, and when it's based on a book, I like to get the book, as the book usually goes into more depth of characters and storylines. There are some significant differences between the movie and the book. I was disappointed in the book in one way that it didn't include what I thought were some of the best parts of the movie. Then there's the flip side, where I wish the movie had included more of the material I considered the most interesting parts of the book and wondered why (the movie) some subplots were added that had nothing to do with the basic story. I suppose movies try to enhance stories to get more interest. But an enjoyable and good read. I'd recommend it.

I have probably watched the film Random Hearts about 15 times now. I never get tired of it. The story is one of betrayal at the highest level of a relationship, discovered only by the participants' untimely death. The survivors grapple with clues trying to determine when the clandestine love affair started, where it took them, how serious was it, and how the innocent partners hadn't a clue at all until their partners died. I think this was Sidney Pollack's last film that he directed. A true masterpiece as most of his films were. This is why I decided to read the book. I was not disappointed. Even though the characters themselves were quite different than they were in the film, the tone and essence of the story is intact. It's a thrilling read, suspenseful and exciting.

Good book. I saw the movie which was very good, but a very different ending than the book. Some other parts were a little different than the movie too, but also in all a good book.

Well written story you will quickly read because you're dying to find out what's ahead. You might see the way you view the world in the way Davis and Vivian views it.

I was disappointed that the book didn't fulfill my wish for even more knowledge about the affair between the cheating spouses. The movie was made way more interesting by the jobs of the widowed spouses and their subsequent attraction to each other, proving once again, that we cannot choose who we love, or are attracted to. Also, it pinpoints how many couples live in denial as to the state of their marital relationships. Loved the movie more, way more. Hooray for Sidney Pollack who directed and helped with the script, I'm sure.

I really enjoyed the book after seeing the movie. Author writes nicely and tells a good story.
I liked this book much better than the movie version. Much more info on the relationships than what the movie shows.
