I was so totally right! The trailer for the movie of my all time favorite book looks horrid - at least to me. Within a 1 minute TV trailer I saw several things that don't jive with the book, including the combination of two key characters into one role. Urgh. I will not see it!

As I'm commenting on books I've read, and seeing as I really do want to adapt this book for the stage, I feel it's an "appropriate" comment for this blog. Haha...


  1. ok, that is the VAGUEST posting EVER!!
    What book? what movie? what charactors?
    Its killing me.

  2. Hahaha, you're too funny. It's "Water For Elephants" by Sara Gruen.

    The characters that appear to be melded into one are August and the circus' Ringmaster, and in my mind the ringmaster is the only character in the book who has any "control" over the horrid August and his 'doings', and that's a needed (again in my opinion) element to the story line.

    Plus, while nothing can ever be what I saw in my mind, the trailer just doesn't look anything like what was in my mind. But I digress...
