In less than a month, the Outlander mini series on Starz is going to resume!! I am so excited that I decided to move forward in my reading of the series by Diana Gabaldon, and start Drums of Autumn. At the same time, I am also rewatching all of the previous episodes of Outlander.
That is what I mean by OVERDOSING. LOL! Check out my thoughts on the series and the fourth book, Drums of Autumn.
A reader and fan had an absolutely fantastic idea about creating a dream cast for the Gabriel Inferno series using all Canadian actors/actresses. As SR is Canadian and so much of the series takes place there I wanted to share her choices with you. I think they’re all terrific!
This week’s topic is about classics and bloggers could spin the topic however they liked. I chose to talk about my Top Ten Movie Adaptations of Classic Novels. I personally love classics, and I think they’re really worth the read. They have so much to offer and there’s no more thought-provoking book than a classic… They have also inspired so many contemporary writers, and no matter which period we live in, classic novels are evergreen.
This is proved by the many movie adaptations of these books. Some of them are spectacular and stay true to the classic and its characters. Some others end up leaving out important themes and crucial scenes, sometimes because of the running time, sometimes because some directors favor sceneries and the visual impact instead of the actual story.
