I absolutely fell in the love with the storytelling in this movie when I saw it. I love how the story unfolds through the reading of each other’s journals. I was desperately hoping for some of this brilliance in the book and was sorely disappointed. Now I really want to see the movie again.
Congrats on the new blog.
Have a wonderful day.
Thanks for your comment, Megan. I also thought the journals were a great way of allowing each magician to get inside the head of the other. I guess the book was never going to be as spectacular. But it did win a SF award, I think.
Lol. Well award or not, I will flat out say it. I thought the book was stupid and a flat out waste of time. But maybe that reflects badly on my character.
I’m sure it doesn’t 🙂 But now I’m intrigued and want to read the book just to see what the differences are…
