Last week I read three of Trevanian's novels. The Eiger Sanction, Loo Sanction and Shibumi.
The Clint Eastwood movie Eiger Sanction was based on Trevanian's book. Personally, my
impression is that the movie is better than the book, but without the book, there would have been no movie.
Currently there is a movie in the works based on Shibumi and plans are under way for one based on the Loo Sanction.
I wasn't impressed by the Loo Sanction.
As for Shibumi, although there were interesting bits about caving which held my interest, the overall read was not stellar.
In the tradition of the Eiger Sanction, I hope the movies for both Shibumi and Loo
are more enjoyable.
