One of the next books on my To Read list is Horns by Joe Hill. Hill, son of writer Stephen King, writes an entertaining blog which I wish he updated more often (though I’m not a fan of deliberate spelling mistakes).
As another fan of David Mitchell and Cloud Atlas, I was interested to read his views on the upcoming film adaptation and find they are similar to mine – looking forward to it but wondering how the film makers will do it justice. Hill will have seen the movie by now – I wonder what he thought of it?
I was also intrigued by the idea of a read along book club – everyone stopping their reading at a certain page, discussing the book as you go, seeing the changes in how people feel about certain characters and events in the story, collectively wondering what might happen next. Quite a different experience to discussing a book once everyone has finished, knows what happens, and has formed opinions about it.
If I push myself I might be able to squeeze in another reading of Cloud Atlas before the film is released in the UK….
