Yeay, my fave day of the week (as I work on a Weds & Thurs)! I'm enjoying GReads' TGIF blog hop so here we go again.
This week the question is: Book to Movie: Which book turn movie do you feel did the best adaptation? What about the worst?
I don't tend to watch films of books I've enjoyed, although I have seen all the LOTR ones and most of the Harry Potter ones. With both I drove my husband mad telling him I was sure they'd missed bits out or added bits in. I like reading because to an extent you use your imagination to picture the characters and places, and a film can present them in a completely different way to what you had visualised. I did quite like the film of Captain Corelli's Mandolin though, probably because the location was just gorgeous.
In the past week I have read and reviewed:
Catching the Eagle by Karen Charlton, historical fiction
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, my first foray into his books
I've almost finished another book, so the review for that will probably be up later. I've also been thinking about the challenges I set for myself this year and which I'm going to do next. Plus there's Christmas shopping to be done, not long now! I hope everyone is looking forward to the festive season. Have a great weekend,
