IronMin - I'm generally with you on the film v. book debate, although I really enjoy the Lord of the Rings films.
The relatively recent 'Count of Monte Cristo' must rank as my least favourite adaptation of a book I liked.
Thats the one.
Dull is not the word. I expected fighting, shagging and something on technology. Instead about history between all the head crusaders and how they where sometimes lucky othertimes just killed!
Ah well, it reminds me a lot of Gladiator so if that's up your street I can recommend it!
Gladiator was good fun.
DM - I know enough about WW2 to know that Ben Affleck did not win the Battle of Britain.
I do hope this thread survives an initial flurry of interest.
I've read chunks of Mein Kampf and found it very, very heavy going. Good luck with it Don.
I've just read Eight Minutes Idle by Matt Thorne. General pulp fiction, set in a Bristol call centre but just a bit too weird for me.
Previous to that I read The Diary of an Ordinary Woman by Margaret Forster, a diary of a woman from 1915 until around 1990 I believe. I very much enjoyed it, made a change from the usual Marian Keyes rubbish.
Has anyone read Londonstani? I had a great conversation with the librarian about it, it's a really strange book with a very interesting plot twist. Highly recommended.
Plodding On, you're a star - throwing 'Coast to coast' in with all this highbrow stuff. Never dreamed it could be in the same thread as Enid Blyton and Winnie the Pooh. Cool
