Does anyone else choose books by the locales in them?

I recently moved to Houston and started reading Galveston by Nic Pizzolatto just because I like to read books that feature places where I've lived or been.  When I lived in SoCal it was super easy to…Continue

Just saw The Lincoln Lawyer. Did Connelly really write a prosecution that inept?

This weekend I saw The Lincoln Lawyer at the local $1.50 theatre.  It was a good flick, but did anyone else feel that the prosecution was way too inept?  Did Connelly really write it that way?

"While we (me) are blasting movies, I feel an obligation to mention two movies that translated very well into film. The Godfather I and  II.  The Bladerunner which I believe to be the best SciFi movie ever."

Books that don't translate well into movies

I just wrote about a book that doesn't translate well into movies on my blog.  I was wondering if you guys can suggest more books that the movie gods have tried to make into a movie, but you feel they failed because the book was too difficult to translate into film.See More
