Suggested by: Superfastreader:

Books and films both tell stories, but what we want from a book can be different from what we want from a movie. Is this true for you? If so, what’s the difference between a book and a movie?

For me, there is always a difference between the book and the movie, but no matter what the differences I am there to be caught up in the story.Whether it is a book or a movie I want to be drawn in so I forget my surroundings....like yesterday when I lost my brand new umbrella on the metro because I forgot about it while I was reading The Last Lecture by Professor Randy Pausch. I am just excited I didn't trip while walking home. I am sure the firefighters watching would have gotten a chuckle but I think I would have fallen on the book and that would have torn the pages.

Back on topic.....

Unfortunately, no matter how good Hollywood is, they cannot compare to my imagination. They cannot match what is in my head. Sometimes they blow me out of the water with something I never imagined but more often then not, they do just good enough. Then there are also those times I really hate, when the movie changes the story of the book. If they were going to change every thing anyway, why couldn't they change the title and have a line in the credits that reads something like: loosely based of the book __________ by________.
ARGH!

Update....

I am much less grumpy today.....I cried about dear Zach......but I will survive. Maybe tomorrow I will write something thought provoking....HA!

Dear Zach was my favorite character on Bones.....who sadly is no longer on Bones as of the season finale...so sad!

I was sorry about Zach too. I was really hoping it was Sweets, but that would have been too easy. I don't know if I could have handled it if it had been Hodgens- he's my favorite.
