I am fascinated by books that get made into movies, especially when it's books that I absolutely adored reading. I am always interested in seeing if it turns out to be a good translation of the book (To Kill a Mockingbird, The Color Purple, Forrest Gump), or if it totally misses the mark (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, any Dr. Suess live action movie). Here's to hoping both of these are pitch perfect, because these were two of my faves. I'm hopeful because that's the kind of gal I am, what do y'all think?
p.p.s. also if you haven't read either of these you should do so ASAP - they're really pretty fantastic. The Lovely Bones: Deluxe Edition The Road (Movie Tie-in Edition 2008 of the 2006 publication)
