Friday Film Talk

Over the Easter period, I watched one of my favourite films 'Gone With The Wind'. It tells the story of Scarlett O'Hara, a spoilt woman who will stop at nothing to get the man she wants and Rhett Butler a man of a very similar nature. The story is a lot more involved than this, but it's hard to condense a film that lasts approximately 3+ hours. All I can say is that I would definitely recommend this film.

Have you seen this film? What's your favourite film?

First Chapter Tuesday

 It's Tuesday again (I'm very confused as to what day it is at the moment, due to the Easter break), which means 'First Chapter Tuesday' in conjuntion with 'Bibliophile By The Sea'.

I'm coming to the end of 'The Kasmir Shawl' by Rosie Thomas and here is the opening paragraph to the book:

'Mair made the discovery on the last day at home in the old house.
        The three of them were upstairs in their father's bedroom. They had come together for the melancholy business of sorting and clearing their parents' furniture and possessions, before closing up the house for the last time and handing over the keys to the estate agent. It was the end of May and the lambs had just been taken away to market. Out on the hill the sheep were bleating wildly, loud, incessant and bewildered cries that were carried in with the scent of spring grass.'
