“Never judge a book by its movie.” — JW Eagan
I have no idea who JW Eagan is. I could probably look him/her up but it might ruin the magic of this quotation for me.
Just think of all the times you’ve been disappointed by a movie after having read the book. The scenes never match. The actors do not look like the characters. Favorite scenes are left on the cutting room floor.
I’m a member of a teacher book club. We read the book then watch the movie. Sometimes we’ll go out afterword to dinner to discuss the two, but just as often we’ll stand outside the theater and argue the finer points.
Join us online or in person. We’d love to have you!
