Hey thanks Tim! I hope the rest of the book lives up to the first half.

Okay people. No topics of discussion? Sigh. I knew I should have just come up with something titillating to talk about and you'd be all over it.

I have a topic. "Brokeback Mountain" made a big statement this year, and it was based on a short story by Annie Proulx. Sooo, are there any books you guys would like to see made into movies?

I read a book years ago that I always thought would make an interesting movie. It's called "The Art of Breaking Glass" by Matthew Hall. It's not that it was the best book in the world, but it just had so many dramatic elements that I thought we be fantastic in a movie.

I'll try to describe it a little so you get what I mean. The main character is Susan, and she works at Bellvue hospital in the mental ward. I can't remember the main guy character's name off hand, but he's a patient there and he forms an attachment to Susan, though he uses her to escape. Susan almost gets fired after he escapes and has lots of personal and professional dufficulties as a result.

The guy then appoints himself as her protector, maybe in attonment for using her. She has a date that turns violent and her 'protector' finds out about it. He goes to the date's house and using a kind of homemade branding iron brands the words "I hit women" onto the dates chest.

That part blew me away. The guy does all kind of crazy stuff like that, but you find yourself kind of admiring the character because he does all the things we fantasize about, but don't do because of societal rules and moral restraints.

What would you like to see on the big screen?

Well, I will be beating a dead horse into the ground and kicking it a little to say so, but I would LOVE to see Lian Hearn's Tales of the Otori trilogy (Across the Nightingale Floor, Grass for His Pillow, and Brilliance of the Moon) made into movies.

I know the first book is in production but who knows if it will make it to the big screen. But the story is so dramatic and epic that if it is done well in film, it could be an incredible movie.

Hmmm... books to movies... hmm... about ninety percent of the regency romances I've read. It seems like that period is sadly neglected when it comes to the movies. I may be wrong however.
