Birdsong -Sebastian Faulks Dracula – Bram Stoker A court of thorn and roses series – Sarah J Maas Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen Metamorphosis – Kafka
Nice list , some great books , metamorphosis by Kafka is so good ?
@Laura I have just finished Birdsong and am now watching it on TV (a 2 part BBC adaptation) the movie was a good mix between a passionate love story and a dreadful war. I have mixed feelings about Isabelle, what about you?
Sandra Robinson I always loved the book at school then I reread it the character of Isabelle makes me feel like she is insecure because of her childhood but this no excuse for some of her actions in this book. I watched the adaptation and found it to be a good rendition
@Laura have watched the first part, the actors played the parts well. Not as emotional as the book though, and the war scenes were pared back a bit too much. Looking forward to part 2.
