45890 I was still considering it, a co-worker mentioned that it is NOTHING like the book but it has been a while since she had read the book.

45890 Something Borrowed, it started out so great! I enjoyed the book so much, despite the typical distructive, toxic friendship and the love triangle... then 40 pages from the end the whole thing fell a part for me... BLAH-blah predictible, lunch bag let down.

45890 The Gathering (Darkness Rising, #1) by Kelley Armstrong

The Gathering, seems to be another YA trilogy that Kelley Armstrong is working on with tie-ins to her previous "Darkest Powers" trilogy... and is equally thrilling! and better written, with darkest powers it seemed as though she was figuring out what sort of style would work for the audience she was seeking and with this book she has taken off. I am bitting my nails waiting for the next book!!

45890 I am glad you agreed, Callista, I must say that I noticed with the movie that he is actually somewhat good looking...

45890 lol, Callista, you did... but at least I did not PAY to see Red Riding Hood...

Water for Elephants left me really impressed. I started crying from the opening credits because they did somethin impressive they started the movie from where the book ended. An effective cinematic tool. And although little things were omitted, moved around ect. the key tenants and themes that were important in the book was repeated in the movie.

Although I agree with critics, Reece Witherspoon should never have been casted as Marlena - she is probably the only woman right now in Hollywood who is petite enough for that character.

And 5 stars to Rob Pattison! I thought he would never break out of his Twilight shadow and he clearly has with this roll!

I give this movie a 4/5 for book to movie effectiveness.

45890 The rest of the series is really good, and I got really attached to the three children. Be prepared for some repetition in themes and nuances, but it is geared more to young children and repetition is key for younger children when reading such a long series.
