Book Blogger Hop
This week’s Book Blogger Hop question is: How do you handle the writing of a negative review?
I write what I think about the book without criticizing the author personally. And, I try to think of something that I liked about the book or something associated with the book. For example, in my review of The Devil Wears Prada, I say that while I enjoyed the movie more (doesn’t happen very often), I thought Miranda Priestley’s evilness was more pronounced in the book.
This week’s Follow Friday question is: Activity! Dream cast your current read.
Gah! I’m currently reading Precious Bane and I really have no idea how to cast this. It has already been made into a movie so I could cheat and use the actual cast of actors. But, that would be no fun. Here we go:
Prue Sarn: This one is hard to cast because no one I know has a cleft lip that hasn’t been fixed my surgery. I guess they’d CGI/make up it so it’d look right. I think Michelle Dockery, Lady Mary Crawley from Downton Abbey, would make a good Prue Sarn.
Gideon Sarn: I could see Jude Law doing a good job in this role. He’s handsome like Gideon and he does a good job in these darker more selfish kind of roles.
Mrs. Sarn: This one is the hardest for me to cast because you don’t really get a feel for Mrs. Sarn’s character. At least, I haven’t yet. So, let’s just say Kristin Scott Thomas.
Jancis Beguildy: Rosamund Pike just seems like a good choice for this character.
Wizard Beguildy: The first person that popped into my head when I was reading his character was Albert Finney.
Mrs. Beguildy: I just imagine Mrs. Beguildy as kind of a Molly Weasley type character, so Julie Walters is who comes to mind for me.
Kester Woodseaves: Even though I’ve just barely met him in the book, I’m still casting Ewan Mcgregor in this role. Yes, I have a thing for Ewan McGregor, but I really think he’d do a great job. First, he’s Scottish and although the characters are English, they speak with a very slight Scottish accent. And, if I were Prue Sarn and saw
Ewan McGregor Kester for the first time I would’ve fallen in love with him too.
There are many other characters in the book, but I think these are the most prominent ones in the story.
