Last year I posted each day by the seat of my pants. And this year I actually gave it some thought and started ahead of time. *YAY* Since I love movies and books, my posts will be centered around books adapted to film and to amazing screenwriters, and play-writers.
ANGELS & DEMONS by Dan Brown
A Mystery/Thriller published in 2000.Angels & Demons was adapted to film in 2009 and directed by the awesome and talented Ron Howard. I've read the book and seen the movie, both are spectacular! Angels & Demons was brought to film after The DaVinci Code, however, the DaVinci Code was published in 2003 after Angels & Demons.
From You Tube: A conversation with the stars about the movie and The Illuminati. Very Interesting.
Trivia: What Movie Star portrayed the Camerlengo, the one who gains temporary control of the Vatican?
Check out the answer tomorrow.
Hmm.... Good choice. I really loved the movie. Not so sure about the book, though. It's all about likes and dislikes, right? Looking forward to the rest of your posts!ReplyDelete

I liked Angels & Demons better than the DaVinci Code.Delete
I have not seen the movie, but it sounds good.ReplyDelete
It is good.Delete
I haven't seen it either. Just the first one.ReplyDelete
It's good Alex.Delete
I enjoyed the movie and the book also. I'm going to enjoy your theme.ReplyDelete
Thank you SusanDelete
I have seen the movie, but have not read the book. I actually liked the movie.ReplyDelete

The book of course is better.Delete
I saw the movie, liked Tom Hanks but felt it had so many plot holes I just couldn't enjoy it.ReplyDelete
Everyone is different right?Delete
I've never read a book by Dan Brown (don't hate me), but I did see the movie and it was wonderful. Disturbing, though.ReplyDelete
I always hate to start a good thriller because then I do nothing else but read. This one was hard because of the graphic scenes, but it kept my heart pumping. Loved the movie.ReplyDelete
Movie was great, but I'm actually one of those who liked the book better. I guess I just love a good read over a good movie!ReplyDelete
I like to read the book first. Have to add that one to my library list.... thanks!ReplyDelete
I read this book, but didn't see the movie. Must add it to my queue!ReplyDelete
I read the book and watched the movie, I liked both ;)ReplyDelete
The book, of course, was better. The movie was thrilling. Thanks for stopping by Lee, Randi, Robin, Lara, SK.Delete
I read DaVinci Code but for some reason never read this book or saw the movie. I need to remedy that. Great choice for a theme!ReplyDelete
Oh, I forgot about this book....now I want to read it! (Or maybe I'll just see the movie)ReplyDelete
It's hard for me to read a book after seeing the movie - I like to do it the other way around, but lately I've been concentrating on books by the indie author. Supporting the new authors so much more fun!ReplyDelete
Julie, Angels & Demons is better than DaVinci Code, but that's my opinion.Delete
Sharon, it's pretty good.
Yolanda, I agree.
FUN theme! I believe the answer to the trivia question is Ewan MacGregor. I did see this movie, but have not read the book, though my husband did and enjoyed it. :)ReplyDelete
Ava You're right!!Delete
I believe I saw that one. I know everyone got into this series, but I really didn't. *shrugs* Not my brand of cheese, I suppose. I'm too busy living in the fantasy world with my pet zombie, trapped slaves, er, guest scientists, and rainbow-eating unicorn. (Sparkles is new around here. Ooh, I better keep her far away from the prison, I mean, basement.)ReplyDelete
I never could quite get into Dan Brown's books but what a great idea for the challenge. Can't wait to read the rest of the alphabet!ReplyDelete
I read this book so fast - I thin I finished it in one or two days, because I couldn't bear to put it down! This is going to be a fun theme :)ReplyDelete
Crystal, Fantasy is always good.Delete
Stephanie, Brown's books aren't for everybody.
Liz, I agree.
I am years behind on watching movies, but this looks interesting.ReplyDelete
Love this theme. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.ReplyDelete
This is great! I love books and films too. Although I watch more Bollywood than Hollywood. Have read Dan Brown's Angels & Demons - twice I think. Loved it. I felt the movie could not match the book although it was very goodReplyDelete
I haven't actually watched that movie yet.... I guess I just didn't get on the craze bandwagon when it happened, and forgot to check it out afterwards. I should rectify that. :)ReplyDelete
Alex Hurst, fantasy author in Japan. "B is for Books" is my current post.
I've read the book, but not seen the film.ReplyDelete
I'm the only person I know who has read Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, but not seen any of the films.
I do love films, don't get me wrong. But I always worry that some will spoil the images their books words have conjured in my imagination.
Sundari, Alex, Winter Moon, thank you for commenting.Delete
Angels and Demons is one of my favorite books! But I haven't seen the movie yet.ReplyDelete
I liked the book better than the movie, and liked A&D better than D-Code. Dan Brown has since not written anything worth reading, sad to say....ReplyDelete
