IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve started several books but havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t finished anything lately. The Spy Who Loved Me, by Ian Fleming is a bit unlike his other Bond books, as this one is written from a womanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s perspective. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m about halfway through this 172-page book, and so far it has just been VivienneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s back-story Ã¢â‚¬â€œ who she is and how she views men. So far, it has been masterfully written and engaging.
I found the book with the cover to the right at Half-Price Bookstore.
And similarly, I just received this rare gem, The Moneypenny Diaries, by Kate Westbrook. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be starting this one as soon as IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve finished The Spy Who Loved Me.
I also just received the newest Rogue Angel book, The Chosen, by Alex Archer (Victor Milan), a month early. CanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait to jump into this one too.
I saw Eragon this weekend. And though itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not even on the same playing field as the book, it was still a fun movie. As IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been saying, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just a fast-forward version of the book. The story moved along almost too quickly. And a lot had to be left out to make the time frame. I think this should have been a much longer movie. But then, I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to front the money for the making of the film. It had a decent opening weekend, at least beating out CharlotteÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Web.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m looking forward to hearing what you all think of the movie and/or book as well.
