My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I heard great things about this book, so I was interested in reading it. I am never sure if I’m going to like the same things about a book that everyone else does, so I take these things with a grain of salt. I loved it almost from the start. 

The story was very thought-provoking even though it was definitely fiction. I did figure out the the ending about 3/4 of the way through, but, as always, the adventure is in the journey, even if we do know the ending. 

The book kept my attention all the way through. It is one that I will continue to think about for years to come. I definitely recommend this book.

Rampage

I loved playing Rampage at the arcade when I was young. I was very interested in how they would adapt it for a movie, so when my social group decided to watch it for a Friday movie, I joined in.

It was actually better than I thought. It had a plot and all. I liked how the director didn’t get us attached to Ralph or Lizzie. George was always the primary character.

It was a movie where you didn’t have to think much about what was going on. It was perfect for a Friday night movie.

Caregiver: A Love Story

I found this film through Eventbrite, by The Roxie. It was a wonderful, 25 minute documentary about a woman on hospice. She was lucky enough to have her husband as her caregiver. Her husband wasn’t getting a break, and the hospice system really isn’t set up for people to die at home. The film helped to show this. It was definitely worth watching. It is on Eventbrite for a few more weeks, and is worth the $5 ish to watch it.

I picked this book up after it went circulating around one of my reading groups, mostly as a joke, so I wasn’t expecting much. I looked at the number of reviews, and at how many stars it had, so I was expecting more. I decided to go for it. I regret it. This was the weirdest book I’ve ever read. I spent a lot of my reading time shouting “No! Don’t go in there!” and feeling very strange about it. 

I had difficulty suspending belief on this one. I just couldn’t get the idea of the book in my brain.

Rebecca

I watched the original version of the movie, Rebecca, earlier this year. I loved it.

I heard that Netflix put out a remake of the movie, so, of course, I had to watch it. I was a little nervous that the remake wouldn’t be as good as the original. I was so wrong. I really enjoyed the movie and I could almost say that it was better than the original. Part of that was because a few parts in the book weren’t clear in the original and I suspect that the censorship in that time was too much for the movie.

I’m glad I took a shot at watching the movie. It was enjoyable. I recommend watching it, but I also recommend the original movie.
