A book group I am a member of read this recently... and not one of us liked it. This was slightly disappointing to a couple of us, since we had hoped to be enlightened as to why a lot of people do seem to like it.

The first thing to say is that it is well written — very well written. The quality can't be faulted in that respect. The problem is that the story is told entirely from the point of view of a sociopath. This is very well realised, but a sociopath isn't a particularly interesting head t
I used the screenplay to write an essay: a psychoanalytic reading of fasion in The Talented Mr. Ripley. May be the best and most enjoyable paper I've written this year.

Still working on it.. School assignment.. But i'm still pretty excited about it; seen the movie (:
He's not the husband of the lady who fights aliens. Just thought I should mention it, 'K?
Strange but good. Kept me on the edge of my seat. Kind of creepy but exciting thriller.
interesting. while u can also cross check with the movie. :-)
