November was a great reading month. I read many books which were on my TBR for quite sometime. I read a total of 8 books, out of which one was a graphical novel. November was also sci-fi month so I read a couple of science fiction books too.
I watched the new Fantastic Beasts movie – The Crimes of Grindelwald on the day it was released, as you can expect from me. I then read the screenplay book the very next day. I did not get time to blog about it as I was traveling. Now that I am back, I have plenty of thoughts on the movie and the screenplay.
This post will contain SPOILERS so if you haven’t yet seen or read this part of Fantastic Beasts series, then skip this post.
Dark Matter by Blake Crouch is a fast paced science fiction thriller about multiverses published this year (2016). I saw mixed reviews of this book so I initially thought I will not get a hard copy and instead read an ebook. I read some 25% of the book and lost interest. I then realized few days back that maybe it was because of the format of the book that I did not enjoy it much, as these days I am not able to read on Kindle for some reason (just don’t feel like reading on it). This week I got a hard copy of this book and finished reading it this weekend. And you know what, I absolutely loved it.
I watched the movie and then read the screenplay today. Every scene and dialogue in the book matches with what I saw on the screen. It was like watching the movie for the second time – but with my added imagination, making it even more awesome. The descriptions of the beasts and reading more about the beasts made reading the book worthwhile.
