30 Day Book Challenge – Day 17

 Day 17- Book turned movie and completely desecrated

I am writing this post for my dear friend who writes “Back from the Edge” I had posted  yesterday for Day 16 of the 30 Day Book Challene Favorite book turned movie and this was one of the comments made, I thought these comments were worth sharing and I just loved the thoughts shared by my fellow blogger.

It would have to be Memoirs of a Geisha.

“Back from the Edge” :

Ok, I like this post because I respect your opinion. My opinion, however, is that it is the worst (seriously, I’m that emphatic!) film from a book ever made. I thought it was almost as miscast as Gary Oldman as Sirius Black. Of course, these things are completely subjective and  I love that you love the book. Isn’t it just a complete masterpiece?

I loved the honesty in the comment above and thought it totally appropriate for today’s post.

Thankyou to Back from the Edge.


Day 16 – 30 Day Book Challenge – Favorite book turned movie

30 Day Book Challenge – Day 16

 Day 16 – Favorite book turned movie

Favorite book turned movie….hmmm…could be The notebook…could be War Horse…certainly wasn’t Girl with The Dragon Tattoo  🙂  It would have to be   Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden!!!

Read the book loved it !  Saw the movie loved it too, and it was just as I had imagined it would be, the story and the characters I’d read about in the book  were brought to life on-screen, and that doesn’t happen too often.  The movie really did do the book justice.

Worth reading and watching.

In my humble opinion 🙂
