I read The English Patient and holy cow, you have to read it. (If you don't I'm going to come to your house and make you go out and buy organic vegetables! Ha. Ha.) The writing style is ephemeral, yet somehow unabridged at the same time. You need to know the amazingness that is the writing in that book.
I watched the movie, and while it was packed with great, meaningful scenes, the book made it much more detailed. The movie did not deviate from the book so I would recommend reading the book and then watching the movie to have the complete, expansive story.
Now I'm reading Jane Eyre because I'm in the mood for something English. I don't know why, but I think it's mainly to do with the language. It's so...proper. And flowery. What is the right word? Genteel? Mannerly? Yeah.
I currently have two movies from Netflix to watch: The Constant Gardener and Failure to Launch.
Anyway. What are you reading these days? What movies have you seen? What would you recommend? How many questions can I put in one blog post?
