It's Monday, What Are You Reading? #17

In the last week I finished Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow and began its sequel, Innocent. In between I watched the movie, Presumed Innocent online on Netflix. Was a bit perturbed by the way they did the ending. Right up until the verdict they followed the book very close but then they went on tangents, like giving lines from one character in the book to a different character in the script. And in at least two instances I believe they trashed the integrity of the story. Can't be more specific without giving spoilers. But in my opinion the ending of the movie took a story with depth and meaning, an intense character study, and welded on a grade B thriller movie ending.

I confess I've been watching more DVD and streaming videos than reading in the last week. Not only did I have several checked out of the library I'd been in long queues for but I'm trying to take full advantage of my free trial month of Netflix. I'll probably continue to do so this week as well. But my intent for the week is to finish Innocent and get as far as possible in Barbara Kingsolver's Lacuna. Both books are long and have long queues at the library.

I love watching the movies after I have read the book. I just did that with The Girl With The Dragon tattoo and that review will go up tomorrow.

Have a super week :)
