Well, we’re ending a great week of appreciation brought to us by My Friend Amy. It was fun getting to know so many new bloggers and participating in some good contests. Thanks so much for a fun week!
On another note, I wrote a post a little while ago about The Ruins by Scott Smith. Well, I buckled and watched the movie. While I would recommend the book, I would NOT, NOT, NOT recommend the movie. It was terrible! I was a little surprised since Scott Smith wrote the screen play for the movie. Even the author of the book couldn’t stay true to it. He changed whole character’s personalities and not for the better. The movie had none of the psychological conflict that the book had. And, they didn’t do too well making the scary part scary. But, they did succeed on a pure gore factor. The movie was a big disappointment.
On a lighter note, I recently read the book Other People’s Love Letters. It’s a collection of love letters submitted by people of all ages. While I thought this was a good idea and was looking forward to reading some of the notes, I was a little disappointed. A good portion of the notes were break-up letters or bitter responses to a break-up. I didn’t find too many romantic ones. The best one was from a little boy to a little girl. Very cute! One good thing I enjoyed was at the end of the book. The editor provided a brief story of some of the letter’s relationships and their current status. That was kind of fun to read.
