When I went to see "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" I had no idea David Fitcher was the director. I figured it out during the opening credits even before it said "A David Fitcher Film" His camera work is unmistakable. I became very excited when I saw indeed it was David Fitcher's film. As I had expected he turned a book I thought too "wordy" into a masterpiece. As soon as I got home I read the entire book in one night. Even though I knew what happened I wanted to see how close he came to executing making the book into the film. I quickly downloaded the
second book in the trilogy when I finished the first, so when the next movie comes out I'm on top of it. I don't know who is directing the adaptation of the second book, The Girl who Played with Fire". I'm extremely excited to see if he or she lives up to first film. I've see a still shot of the second film and its amazing.
When I read The Girl who Played with Fire I no longer found the book too "wordy" or too "descriptive". I found the book much easier to get into than the first. I'm not sure if the reason is because I saw the adaptation of the book into film, or because I read the entire first book the day before and was in a hurry to find out what happens next? Either or, I flew through the second book in a day and a half. I wanted to read the third, and last book, The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest", but I had no money on my debit card, and I was unable to download the book to my nook. I told myself I'd buy it next month when I got paid...I didn't.
Before I knew it I was hooked on Victorian Literature, and didn't want to read any newer novels. One exception is memories, I'm always willing to read a good memoir. Certain memories I should say, drug and mental illness suffers memories'. I've been reading older books for a few months now, actually ever since I went back to the Methadone clinic which was a year ago on the 29th of this month. Yesterday I decided it is time for me to read a newer novel, because the book I'm trying to write is starting to read like an old Victorian novel. Does anybody else start to write like the author they are reading at the moment? I sure do. So I went to my nook ( I haven't read any books on my new nook yet) and I downloaded "The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest". I started reading last night around 8pm, and I stayed up until about 11pm. I only got about 50 pages in if that. Again I'm having trouble getting into the book. So today I went and re read the last three chapters of the second book so I could remember what the hell was going on. After I finished those three chapters, I decided to write this post about it, and now I'm going to begin reading "The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest".
