by Stephen King. For some strange reason, this is one of my favorite books! On several occasions, I've picked it up, opened it to the middle and read to the end and then gone back to the beginning and read it through to the end again. I can't explain it...
So, I was sorely disappointed in the movie. I can remember sitting in the theatre (probably even the exact seat I sat in) and these two old ladies behind me were saying how wonderful and fantastic the movie was, and all I could say was, "But the book was so much better!"
And, ollieorange, I've never read The Fountainhead
but a girl I used to work with LOVED it! It just seemed like something that I wouldn't like (Hmmmm...that could be a book that could answer the question from earlier...unless I don't like it after I read it
). And, I always worry that I'll hurt someone's feelings when they recommend a book and I don't love it as much as they do. That happened with Beloved
by Toni Morrison. A guy gave it to me for Christmas in our work swap and said it was his favorite book. I put off reading it for a long time (even though he always asked me about it) and when I finally read it, it just didn't thrill me.
