The movie is pretty much flawless so I don't see the need to read the book. It's part of John McTiernan's trilogy of perfection along with Predator and Die Hard.
It makes you remember how good of an actor Alec Baldwin was, before he became insufferable.
Same genetic stock as Stephen Baldwin of Bio-Dome fame. Alec just had us fooled longer.

He was mostly an unknown before that movie and thus had little ego to ruin things. IIRC they wanted Harrison Ford from the start but couldn't afford his salary.

When Patriot Games came around Baldwin's cuntery had blossomed and he demanded a huge salary increase to reprise the role. So much that the studio could get Harrison Ford for the same amount, so they did.

Oh Jesus what a wimp. Let's try to make you a man. Read these:

The Way of Men by Jack Donovan (to learn how to be a man)
Might is Right by Ragnar Redbeard (to learn the way of human nature)
Animal Farm by George Orwell (to learn the constitutional nature of communism)
Free to Choose by Milton Friedman (to learn how capitalism is the only reasonable economic system)
Three Second Fighter by Geoff Thompson (to learn the essentials of fighting another man)
Nationalism. Capitalism. Patriarchy. All else is error.

It all depends on what you mean by "real" literature. All pre-20th century literature is in the public domain, so you can find enough classic literature to last a lifetime on websites like www.gutenberg.org. However, if you only speak English but want to read foreign-language stuff like Dostoevsky, I would recommend doing some research on which English translations are the most well-regarded before you read the older ones that are widely available for free.

By the way, once your local library reopens, you could get a library card and then rent e-books from it. You have tons of options.

University of Adelaide used to be the GOAT place to get pubic domain English ebooks until they shut down their eBook section and seemingly nobody archived it and dumped it onto the internet archive or whatever.
Standard Ebooks is decent for public domain books too, they're usually cleaned up Gutenberg texts. Not the biggest selection but they had a few books that UOA didn't.
Libgen is your friend in all other circumstances.
Private trackers like MAM or bibliotik will have things public resources don't but if you don't wanna deal with private tracker autism you can find enough to read elsewhere. (Someone plz gib bibliotik invite.)

Flippin' heck! I thought I picked the perfect user name for this place. No point in banning you now since I'm sure somebody has screen capped this by now.
Anyway, buy my book!

Edit: I guess the Bible quote in my signature was a tell as well.
