I am really liking my roommate but fear she'll be getting a new house sitting job and moving out the end of next month. This will make me mad but I can't help but sympathize with getting a free place to live instead of one that pays.
16. Adaptation: What book would you most like to see made into a film? Do you like to read the book first or see the film? Any books you have read after seeing the film version?
I try to read a book that I think I am likely to enjoy reading before I see the film; it's much easier for me to get through a movie rather than to read a book I already know the details of.
The Shining, I read that after I saw it, and decided the film was much better.
I think I'd really like to see The Silver Spoon, a really good Italian cookbook, made into a movie, as I think it would be a real challenge to bring those recipes to life on stage. Mostly I just don't ever care about books I read being made into movies; people who make movies will find the good books to work on if they want to; God knows they find plenty of bad books already.
