Reader Q&A: Brianna from Chicago, IL

Posted by webmaster
Brianna K. from Chicago, IL joins us for today's Reader Q&A, where she talks about the last good book she read, favorite film adaptations, and the three fictional characters she'd like to meet.


What is the last book you read? Would you suggest it to a friend? Why or why not?

THE REFORMED VAMPIRE SUPPORT GROUP. Definitely, because it's a different take on vampires and makes fleeting references to Stephenie Meyer. It's cool to see how vampire lit affects others in the genre.

Name three characters from a book that you'd like to invite to your birthday party.

Meggie from the Inkheart Trilogy, Ron Weasley from Harry Potter, and Mr. Darcy from PRIDE AND PREJUDICE.

Do you have a favorite quote from a book? If so, what is it?

"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so." - THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY

What movies have you seen that were based on books? Did you like the book or film version better? Why?

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: I liked the book better, but I think it was mostly because the movie had to give the story a definitive plot while the book didn't necessarily.

Harry Potter: I like them equally because I still believe that the movies are good interpretations of the book.

Inkheart: I thought it was a brilliant and faithful interpretation. SO beautiful.
