Tiina (ladybuginlove) | 371 comments Turns out I've read at least two books that have been made into movies this month!

I started this book in April and finished it in May, but Natsuo Kirino's Out is one of my favourite reads this year, because of the psychological aspects. I didn't really enjoy the ending and the translation into Estonian was a little bit iffy but the book was totally gripping and I have no idea why I didn't pick it up earlier! It had been sitting on my Goodreads to-read shelf for a very long time until I finally picked it up. The movie based on it came out in 2002 and was directed by Hideyuki Hirayama. I hope I find a way to watch it, although it seems many people didn't like the movie. Oh, and someone has put the audiobook of "Out" on youtube.

In 1988, a movie was released based on the Dutch author's book The Assault. The book was short and I haven't made up my mind yet about whether I liked it or not. Compared to a lot of books about War, I felt this lacked the overflowing emotion that i kind of expected Maybe it was a good thing, maybe it wasn't. I suppose time will tell.

I also found an article about a movie based on The Summer Book being currently in production :
