i heard about the angels and demons and that its pretty good. i tried to read it near the end of summer but school started and just got a couple of pages through so whats that like?
the odd thomas book is about a chef who can see ghost and its a really funny book. they all have a similar plot where he has to save some people or someone from being murdered by using the spirits to help him in some way or anther.

O that sounds like an interesting book. Angels & Demons is a very good book. I am only a few chapters in but so far it has kept me glued to the pages. The author is fantastic. I can't wait to read The Da Vinci Code after I am done with this one.

What do you think the best movie made from a book was? I say The harry Potter movies were the best. The followed the book almost perfectly, and had great production quality.

I wouldn't mind joining. I'm in the process of reading "Brave New World". So far it's a good book. Anyone else ever read it?
Oh, and I think the best movie made from a book is "A Clockwork Orange".

I have never seen that movie but I did Google it, and it looked rather creepy. Never read that book before, but what do you think of it?

Once we get more people in the crew there will be a much better chance of some one reading the book you have and being able to discuss it. Just give it some time.

lol Yeah. It's a pretty edgy. Or at least it was for the time it was released. And as for the book, it's strange but good. Can't quite explain it. Guess you'll just have to read it lol.

I think there is already a Book crew.
Whether its dead or not I don't know. But if this isn't locked I'll happily join.

My favourite book is Mark Haddon's 'A Spot of Bother'. Though I'd say my favourite author is Kurt Vonnegut.

As for best films to come from the books it has to be Lord of the Rings. The books are good but a little enduring, and while the films are enduring too I just love them.
I think the Harry Potter films aren't that brilliant either. The first three work but Goblet/Order have so much cut out that it makes the books far better.

And Dan Brown is poo.

I did search the forums before I posted this. I didn't find anything so if there is I am sorry.

The lord of the rings movies had good action and battle's but the story line just dragged on and on.

Well the Goblet of Fire and The Order of the Phoenix are long books. I didn't mind the things they had to leave out.

I like the story, acting and everything. I could easily watch all 3 back to back :).

They just feel rushed to me. And the fights aren't great, which is CGI's fault really, but still, I always feel disappointed.

And I've not read A Clockwork Orange, but I love the film and it is a book I plan on reading in the future. I've not been reading much recently though, I was going through 2/3 books this time last year due to depression and insomnia and I've kind of backed off since last summer. I'm currently reading Lord of the Flies by William Golding though, its the only book I owned that I hadn't read recently.

Lord of the Flies was a great book. The movies were nothing special but it was forever ago.

As for the harry potter effects they were not great but they did the job with the technology available. I couldn't ask for much more. They do get better with each movie.

I liked Order of the Phoenix, actually. I liked all the movies except Goblet of Fire. Dunno, it just didn't flow very well.

Well it is nice to have you with us. This is just the type of crew to motivate you to read. I hope we get some writers soon. I was looking forward to reading some 'underground' work.

The Goblet of Fire was not my favorite harry potter movie but I didn't have any huge complaints.

there usually arn't alot of books that are made into good movies but I have to agree that the Harry Potter books were made into pretty decent movies and pretty much followed the story line of the books. Oh and by the way has anyone read any good Anne Rice books? So far im reading the vampire chronicles and up to the 4th book and it seems okay but i was wondering if you guys knew anything else that was good by her.

One of my all time favorite books, A Child Called It is autobiography of Dave Pelzer's childhood. It was the greatest autobiography I have ever read. The other day at school a peer of mine told me that the story was made up that it was false. What do you all think, fact or fiction?
