 I hope I am not the only one out there who loved the Movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
It has remained one of my top 5 movies ever.  
 Paul Newman and Robert Redford were such a great team.  I have not watched it in years but I just finished a new book just published that brought back so many scenes from my memory and gave me such a pleasant experience I wanted to share.  I am posting my review here and I hope any of you who love books and enjoyed this movie a long time ago will go out and get "Sundance".
Sundance by David Fuller 
My review will be totally biased since my most favorite movie of all time is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.  When I saw Sundance as an option on the LibraryThing's, Early Reviewers list I wanted it! I am so glad I received this book. 
I am not sure if David Fuller was trying to capture the same feel as the movie or not but he nailed it.  In every short, precise statement Harry utters I could see and hear Robert Redford as “The Kid”.  After finishing the book last night I read where Mr. Fuller is a screenwriter, well no wonder I saw each and every person, scene and dialog as a movie! I WANT this to be a movie and I need Brad Pitt to be Harry. He is the only actor I can see pulling off this part. 
For those of you who have not seen the movie and have nothing to base this character on but history may find faults with the book and were expecting something different but I am giving this 4.5 stars because of the cinematic experience it gave me and the fact that he made so many memories of my favorite scenes came flooding back to me after so many years. I fell in love with “The Kid” all over again.

Very enjoyable read, Thank you David Fuller!
