walked down to see The Hunger Games..
first read them over a year ago..
I do that often..
over and over..
I was skeptical about the movie..
I've seen what Hollywood does to books..
The Scarlet Letter (are you kidding me with that??)
Memoirs of a Geisha..
but when I saw the casting for HG..
I got excited..
couldn't wait to see it..
I saw it..
gotta tell you..
for the first hour..
hour and a half..
I know it's only a 2 and a half hour movie..
stuff gets cut..
changing the scope of the story..
to me anyway..
I did like some parts of the games..
I did like the 'behind the scenes' scenes..
but I hated the end..
all in all..
I'd give it a C..
if I hadn't read the book..
I might have enjoyed the movie..
I'm not sure..
Did you like the flick?
Rolling Stone's review
this weekend was too wet..
I spent a wonderfully rainy afternoon..
under my blanket..
read my book..
The Scorpio Races
Sometimes it's nice to read a book..
no ridiculously over-the-top love story..
(yes, I do love those too)
no endless series of books..
(yes, I love those as well)
just a book..
a few horses..
and a race..
malevolent water horses ridden in a yearly race..
perhaps that part isn't quite..
but the story flows..
and I loved it.
