Book and Movie reviews

Last night I stayed up WAY too late to finish a book. I was finally finishing The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. It took me a while to get into it. But ultimately, I liked it. And for some reason I had a feeling that I had read it before a long time ago. I don't understand the mentality of old New York Society. I would have to read it again, and maybe some of her other books to really understand. The ending was a bit "what the heck is he doing!!". But I would recommend it for sure. It is a deep read, so be prepared for some deep thinking.....

Last night we watched Mr. Magoriums Wonder Emporium. Uh, no. Natalie Portman at the end was a little strange. Jason Bateman was very good, but Dustin Hoffman was no where near as good as he was when he was Hook. The kids kind of liked it, but we for sure will not be buying it. The plot was kind of lame, and silly. I would not recommend seeing this one. Good thing we didn't buy it.

It's late, and I don't want to link anything, so there you are. If you really want the book or movie, I'm sure you all know how to use google...:)

I wasn't so impressed by the "Emporium" movie. I much prefer "Enchanted" after the 2nd time. Céleste loves it now and the boys they laughed so hard. So twice was a good number of times for us to watch it and think about getting it for keeps.
