  • That's perfect @168sean168, exactly what I had in my mind when I saw the picture in the book.

    You should show the 2 photos to the people who organise your movie screenings, I bet they'd get a kick out of it. 😃

    I’m rereading Salem’s lot. I don’t remember any of it from when I read it the first time and it’s really good.

    My brother said it was a very scary movie back in the days. But I have yet to watch it

    the book is way better. Stephen King doesn't translate into film well

    I just finished reading "Draculas" by Blake Crouch with 3 other authors. Getting ready to read Stephen King's "Dreamcatcher"

    I just finished Eldest, the 2nd book of the Inheritance Saga which I'm really enjoying, and am now starting book 3: Brisingr.

    It's shaping up to be a classic "underdog battling the forces of evil" offering with a few twists, kinda like a re-telling of the original Star Wars trilogy only set in a Tolkienesque world of Dragons & Elves etc.

    The 1st book of the series: Eragon was made into a reasonable movie a while back which was what prompted me to give it a punt.
    Strangely though it seems to get lumped in with children's fiction? I think because the author was only 15 years old when he started writing the first book but it's definitely written for an adult readership & the darned thing would make a pretty handy doorstop.
    Recommended if you're of a "Lord of the Rings / Game of Thrones" persuasion. 👍

    And the sci-fi references keep coming; I just read a chapter in Brisingr where Eragon makes reference to "The Lonely God", hhhmmm! a nod to The Doctor maybe?

    I've never read Stephen King's "IT" until now. Love it so far. Miraculously I've been spoiler free for the past 35 years since it came out. :o

    @johncolombo I understand the book has a disturbing section about the girl and the rest of the boys. Too disturbing to be included in the films so far :smiley:

  • Realise I’m almost a year out from this thread but just popping back in and couldn’t think of a better thread to home in on!
    Just finished Good Omens (Terry Pratchett/Neil Gaiman) rereading Another Roadside Attraction (Tom Robbins) and planning on rereading all his books in chron order. Also, my sister, mom and myself are reading Jim Butcher’s Dresden series aloud via phone during lunch hours and other random times :) Well, sister is doing the reading, we get to be the audience. We’re up to Small Favors.

    Missed everyone!

    Nothing as loud as the silentmiaow.
