I have not seen the movie. I have only read the book. But the colors are so ubiquitous and the quotes are so beautiful and John Green is my fourth boyfriend, so this month’s Thoughtful Third Thursday offering, Page to Screen, is brought to you by The Fault in Our Stars.

    • Boyfriend #1 is always Google, because he always gives me what I want. Boyfriend #2 is the Doctor, natch. Boyfriend #3 is Amazon because he’s my go-to acquisitions guy. All the other boyfriends take a back seat to the Big 3 and tend to rotate depending on my mood and flavor of the day obsession. Cheeky, aren’t I? ;p

    • Eheh. Since I’m responding from top to bottom this time, please see my response to this query above. Chessa asked the same thing! 😀

    • Thank you! And you got an autograph as well! Was it that fascinating that you stood in line to meet the author? Should I put it on my TBR list?

      • The line wasn’t long about ten minutes. She gave a talk about the book at a local bookstore and then signed. I try to go to a lot of these. I went to the Bay Area Book Festival and heard Peter Coyote speak, then was able to meet him and get that book signed (that line was about 20 minutes after). Things like that are great because, the author’s are usually great to talk to.

        The longest line I ever had was when I bought Bill Clinton’s book (I think in 2006) and was given an autograph ticket. They gave out 1,500 tickets and I was like number 670. That was a long wait but I got to meet him.

        It is a good book, if you like baseball. She did a really good job .

        P.S. I have about 50 autograph books.

    • Ah, Hermione for sure, if we were choosing! Katniss seemed too cold and breakable while Hermione had that indefatigable determination. Plus, magic. 😀

  1. I will now embark on my Disney rant:
    The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling.
    Not sure how old I was when I read this, it was before the animated movie was released by Disney in 67. The book touched me deeply (I wept profusely at the sad parts). In my great 11 year old wisdom, I felt that Disney turned the book into a big joke. Ever since, if a book affects me deeply, I proceed with caution on any movie adaptation.

    • Whole-heartedly agree. My situation was reversed, however. When I was 6, my dad brought home actual reel film (we put it on the projector and everything!) from America and the two famous songs from Jungle Book were in it (Bear Necessities” and “Be Like You”) and we watched that thing as a family ad nauseam. Not the whole film, just the song clips. When I finally got my hands on the book, I was thoroughly shocked at the darkness of the first chapter and have never picked it up since, I was that traumatized. Wonder if I need to reread it now, 36 years later, and give it a shot?

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
