I hope the mini-series of "The Last of the Mohicans" is better than that bad movie with Daniel Day-Lewis.ReplyDelete
I've never seen that one but I bet it was pathetic! I do love Madeleine Stowe, though.Delete
I agree with Debra. The movie was downright awful! We had to watch it in school and it was just not a pleasant experience.ReplyDelete
I do like that book cover!
PS, one more happy birthday hurrah for you before I'm off to bed. I hope you didn't work the whole day away!Delete
I did, all day long and a horrid book as well :) And I'm working today all day long too!Delete
Plan ahead for next year. I better hear about you not working the whole day away and there better be some hot stud muffin mixed into the story as well!Delete
I think it is easier for me to work than not, I'd get super depressed if I wasn't working, especially in the birthday week. Work is the only thing that makes me feel valuable in any way.Delete
Waiting for the epic "The Last of the Mohicans", can be sooooooooooo nice!ReplyDelete
Twill be interesting to see the casting!Delete
Both TV mini series are based on powerful, complex, and timeless materials such as: slavery, mixed races,clash of civilization, love, crime, war.ReplyDelete
With the right cast they'll become and stay memorable cinematic gems.
Happy Birthday to You!
Slavery seems to be a new trend in historical mini series. We had Last Song on Jamaica slaves this winter and also Underground and Roots before that.Delete
The book sounds incredibly good plus the cover is beautiful!ReplyDelete
We do love rich floral covers!Delete
