  1. I'm interested to see the movie version of Nick Hornby's Long Way Down. Should be out this year sometime.

    1. Me too....although I was less impressed with the book than I expected to be. Hopefully the movie will move along a little faster.

  2. You're right, that Harry Potter movie did kind of suck. :-)

  3. I used to love James Patterson and devoured every book when it came out, but since he started having "co-authors" (who I suspect do most of the writing), I think the quality has diminished significantly. I am always disappointed, now, when I make the mistake of getting one of his new books.

  4. Our comedy Tape Radio group (WTIT) did a parody of Withering Heights. We called it "Blundering Delights"...

  5. I've never even picked up a copy of The Satanic Verses. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever heard anyone even express an opinion on it before. That you hate it makes me think I've made the right choice in avoiding it.

  6. I bought Satanic Verses just in Protest. It's allegory but still, it's pretty ugly.
