I saw this movie last night. I did not read the book first, on purpose. I wanted to go in without knowing anything but what the trailer could tell me.

My heart was in my throat for over an hour. I think my blood pressure was skyrocketing with anxiety. It was so exhilarating!!! It was really good. I cried a couple of times. I'm not ashamed to say it :)

It was a bit predictable. I guessed correctly what was going to happen over and over and over. However that didn't diminish the fun I had. I'm just an experienced reader and moviegoer. There was one part that took my by surprise and I was satisfied by that. I could argue that because they did such a good job with character and foreshadowing, this was why I could guess so easily the course of events. Or really, it's because I'm familiar with so many tropes. Who knows :)

At any rate, it was a spectacular time at the movies and I think this should not be missed. I'm going to read the book, now. My son who has read them all was very happy with the adaptation and said that the stuff they left out was ok.

The bluebirds showed up in my backyard for the fourth year in a row. I'm so tickled - the Eastern Bluebird is a recently recovered species - it was almost extinct in the 1960s but because of volunteers putting up nest boxes the species has made a resounding comeback.

I took this photo last year, with my zoom lens I almost never stick on my camera! I'm glad I did that day and that he was so obliging. He's looking at me! :)
