World’s End: Film Adaptation of The Road

Have you read The Road, by Cormac McCarthy? I read it sometime ago, yet the story has remained with me ever since. Here is the blurb from Barnes & Noble:

The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, “each the other’s world entire,” are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

If you haven’t had a chance to read it, do add it to your “to be read” pile so you can read it before the movie comes out. Click here to read the New York Time article about the filming of the movie. I guess shooting a movie about the end of the world has some challenges as far as weather, etc. I can’t wait to see the film.

Happy Kids

Don’t you love happy kids? We spent the weekend bbq’ing with friends, swimming, seeing Wicked (again) and Wall-E at the El Capitan. Both of which were wonderful. It was a weekend full of fun that abrubtly ended when my daughter realized that she had to go to pre-school today. I should have taken a pic of her face. It was classic, but why not remember the happy? Right?

After doing too much on Saturday, I spent almost the entire day on Sunday READING. Yes, that’s right. I actually got to read quite a bit. I was in heaven.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you managed to get some reading time in as well.

Chatting with friends about books and life…
