Books and movies

Chalk is a mockumentary about teachers. Good!

Oooh - loved Constant Gardener! I had never picked it up before cause for some reason I expected an action packed terrorist movie. That's not what it is at all. So good with all its pretty scene of Africa and dastardly deeds. Perfect ending!

I watched MirrorMask because I adore Neil Gaiman. The special effects were pretty amazing but something about them hurt my eyes. I really didn't care for this one at all sadly.

I think My Life in France might be my favorite book of the year. I love Julia Child! Loved hearing all about how she learned to cook and her life with her husband living in so many different countries. I need to invent a time travel machine so I can go back in time, move to France, and be Julia's best friend.

Mirror Mask was really a bit strange and essentially disappointing (and somehow disturbing).
Neil Gaiman has been steadily declining since 'Neverwhere' (imho). Only for this one he is still one of my favorite authors.
To bad that it has yielded no movie so far. (One wonders why not).
