I wanted to do a Print vs. Film for this, I really really did. I love comparing books and movies, and that was the whole reason I’d even read Shutter Island to begin with. A friend of mine forced me to watch the movie quite a while back (to be honest, I had no interest in it when it came out), and immediately after I decided to read the book. Some of you may even remember a post I did a while back involving it.
Now I’m sure you’re astute enough to figure out why I can’t compare the two, but for the sake of stating the obvious, I’ll tell you: They’re nearly identical. There are hardly any changes between the two, and trying to compare them would be like trying to compare white and ivory. Wait, those are different?
Ah, Halloween. A time for scares, candy, costumes, and—wait, what do you mean it’s November? But I have a review for Halloween! That’s not fair! What am I… oh, yeah. It’s the internet and there are no deadlines. And it’s my blog, so I can totally post a late review.
Let me start off with a question: Do you like romance? What about the supernatural? Magic? A little bit of action? Maybe a dash of horror? Or mystery, I bet you like that, right? What if I told you there is a story out there that combines all of these into a relatively small novel?
So a while back I found myself desperate to spend some credit I had on Amazon. After much debate, many searches, and a touching soul-searching montage, I decided to go for a book.Not just any book mind you, but one written by a fellow member of The Spoony Experiment.
I’ve been wanting to get my hands on Mossfoot’s book, “Bleeding Heart Yard”, for some time now, and with everything said and done I now have it.
