No, no nnnnoooo








How come every time I see photos of the making of Water for Elephants I cringe and find myself saying "No, no, nnnoooooo"

Maybe it's more of an anxiety of apprehension, of how it'll turn out. I always get this way when I hear books that I love being turned into movies. Will they be able to get it right? Will it be good enough to do the book justice? Because by golly "Water for Elephants" deserves it! LOL so uhhh all of that bundled up is why :) Have you read the book? What's your feelings?

I am excited. I think it will be good!!! Especially if you go with low expectations, 'coz, yes, I loved the book!!!

I cringe. I think both Pattinson and Witherspoon are wrong for the parts. I probably won't see it. :( The book was fantastic though. Maybe I will just reread the book!

KIKA said...

BookQuoter: I totally know what you mean about going in with low expectations and yes I love the book :) So hopefully!

Carin B. : I nearly screamed when I saw Pattinson was chosen for the part, I mean are you serious? NO! and for Reese I was just meh about it so I am quite apprehensive I tell you. LOL so reread I will! as far as seeing it, I'll probably watch it through my fingers as my hands cover my face---daring to hope that it'll be good
