FYI, Tim as a movie STUNK. Gibson's acting was so bad it was painful, and Piper Laurie was downright pathetic.

Tim as a book did have a far more interesting depth of character development. Those readers who are looking for depth can see what McCullough was actually getting at, which is how society of the time perceived the mentally handicapped and how social mores could be even greater hurdles to overcome than the mental limitations.

Other than that, I've enjoyed McCullough's work (except for the Rome series, which was, sadly, just not my cuppa.)
