I swear I didn't know Sophie Kinsella did not exist. The person, I mean. She is in fact Madeleine Wickham and, as soon as I heard this, I went after her work.
Unfortunately, this book made me miss Sophie. But I'm giving Madeleine another chance soon.
Can't wait for the movies =D
I consider J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye one of my favorite books, so I went after his work. This book didn't impress me as much, but I love dialogues, smart arguments and characters with strong personalities. And it has it all. And if the whole book wasn't that amazing for me, the last page made me reconsider, because it made me think about the point Zooey was trying to prove to Franny for a long time after I closed it. And that was worth it.
Cute. I just wish I had the "one" first of all, so then I can think about cheating on him.
Guys, I'm so sorry, but I don't seem to find the time for blog updates... So I won't be able to write the review this book deserves.
I'll just say this: this book changed my life. I'm now a proud vegetarian girl.
Tim Burton managed to give these characters a background history and conections, and at the same time did NOT kill the original story. Bravo.
Second of the Millenium series, this book is all about crimes and mystery. Ok, not so much. The ending is not that kind of "WTF" ending that I was expecting, but still, a real page-turner.
I don't get what the fuss is all about, Tumblr people! The high point of the movie for me was when Lucy Davis and Martin Freeman were on the same scene.
ps. I have a theory that Bill Nighy appears in every British movie that's ever been made.

What a fantastic movie. I'll be honest, I didn't get everything while watching it for the first time, but after reading the analysis made by Pablo Villaca, my mind was blown. Anyways, go and watch it, and figure out your own theory, that's always more interesting.

Steve Carell + Tina Fey = Do I need to say more?

Wow! I didn't expect to like this movie as much as I did! They are really, really funny together! And their humour is really acid here (just the way I like it), so... yeah, I liked it a lot! And my love for Jenna Fischer just grows and grows.
I'll be honest, when I first read the summary of this book, I wasn't that much excited. But I love Kinsella's work, so of course I was going to read it anyway. And I'm glad I did it, because she doesn't get tired of surprising me. Another page turner classic. Is the story's too absurd? Yes, it is. But it will make you laugh and it will make you tear up. I promise.
I'm a HUGE Safran Foer's fan. HUGE. And once again he has blown my mind. I love how creative his writing is, it's not just letters and words, it's more than that: it's also colors, photos, blank pages... he uses visual and at the same time poetic resources to tell the story, and this just fascinates me.
Brilliant movie. It has it all: romance, mystery, crime, humour and punishment as the main theme. All that brought together in this perfect example of what cinema should be like all the time.
Just for fun.
