water for elephants
I avoided Twilight phenomena because, to be frank, I didn’t want anything to pollute my image of a shirtless, ageless David Boreanaz. Still, I’ve always had a thing for British Boys, and Robert Pattinson has a superbly fascinating face. So, on Sunday I stole into a screening of Eclipse.
Today I read Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. I’ve had this book laying on my bedside table for almost a year, and only picked it up because of the Pattinson connection. I’m sorry I’ve left it so long because this lady can write the socks off some of the authors I’ve been reading lately.
It’s not very often that I anticipate the movie over the book – but with a cast that includes Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson (He looks like he just stepped out of the Salford Lads Club circa The Smiths – that’s enough for me to think he’s hot) and the formidable Christoph Waltz (If there’s a better August out there, I’ve not seen him), Director Francis Lawrence is gonna be hard pressed not to make the adaptation better than the book itself.
