This weeks BBH Question:
What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?
The one I absolutely loved was 'The Lord of the Rings'. It is a typical example of how a director and his scriptwriters looked at a story, analysed and understood it. They understood that the underlying message of the book is one about endurance and friendship. And they translated that to images.
As I'm writing this I'm watching the end of 'The Handmaid's Tale'. We analysed the book for our English AS-levels and I must say I have the feeling I could've written a better script.They completely messed up the ending, didn't get the Republic of Gilead right at all and changed the relationships between all the people!!! Big disappointment!!
This weeks FF Question:
How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?
Eeerm, I haven't read a lot in the last couples of weeks, but usually I read about 3/4 books during a week. I finish about one or two of them, start a new one, give up one I don't like, etc. I usually read books in paperback, but since I got my Kindle I have read loads of books on it. With a Kindle it's much easier to read everywhere, because it's that light and has loads of different books on it.
So, how about you? Leave a link behind and I'll hop on over!!!
