About the movie:

The answer to this is the same as the book but the question is about the movie and not the novel:

That "Lovely Bones" question was, I'm pretty sure, sponsored as an ad on Goodreads. So Goodreads management approved it. It ran for weeks.


Historical Fiction | 133 comments Ok. Just checking. I wasn't sure on that one. Thanks for clearing it up :D

Got #2 and #4. #1 has too many responses (it won't allow itself to be deleted), and I don't see a problem with one that can be answered just by having read the book, whether it mentions the movie or not.

Lobstergirl Which of course raises the point - if that movie question was legitimate, why is every other movie question not legitimate?

Yay! Number 4 bothered me not only because it wasn't about the book but also because it claimed Clint Eastwood directed A River Runs Through It. Not only was it not about the book but the correct answer, Robert Redford, wasn't an option.

Because most require you to have seen the movie, and having read the book is NOT sufficient.

Erin, you can also simply flag the question using the flag link, if a question contains a spoiler, or if the selected answer is incorrect. Librarians regularly review the flagged questions. (I saw that the River Runs Through It question had been flagged, but I don't know if you or someone else flagged it.)


Historical Fiction | 133 comments I flagged it and then thought about the nature of the question and posted it here. Thank you for the tip though. :)
