Yesterday I read, "Eragon" and today I rented the movie.
I really enjoyed the book, and was looking forward to the movie.
I know from the past that movies are never as good as the book. My imagination and the writing is better than a director’s ‘vision’.
The movie was OK, but they took too many liberties, changing things, adding things that weren’t in the book.
I am impressed that the author is a young man. Very young. I think he was about 19 when he wrote it.
I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Oh and I enjoy ruining certain things for my kids, especially movies. Since they hadn’t read the book and knew the clues, they had no idea that Eragon and Murtagh are brothers.
OK, I do that for TV shows too. I watch CSI or Law and Order with them and can usually tell them who the killer is within the first 15 minutes or so. lol
Most of the time I get, "Mom HOW do you do that?" lol
There was a, Werecat in the book, and those stupid movie makers left him out… one of the best characters. I was looking forward to seeing that special effect.
BIG HUGS, Steph
My music is again from the summer of 1970… what can I say, it was a good summer.
