Rebecca, Charlie and Inner Space

I finished reading Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier last week.  I actually had to read this book in high school in about year 10.  It was probably one of the better books we read in high school, and I quite enjoyed reading it a second time.  Although to be honest I have no idea why she fell in love with him.  Maxim is distant and aloof at the beginning of the book - someone you might possibly have a crush on but not someone you could actually easily love.  Meh.  I probably threw out all my notes on the book from high school before I moved to Canberra, so can't look at what sort of work we had to do on it.  Oh well.

Finished Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl last week.  And then saw the second half of the movie again after having read the second half of the book.  So that was pretty cool.  

Finished reading Inner Space by Nathan Elliot today.  I really loved the movie, seeing it when it first came out at the movies.  In fact when I saw the movie I had absolutely no idea what it was about, just that it was by Steven Spielberg so was likely to be good.  So I picked up the book at a book fair last year.  The book is actually pretty boring.  Well not boring in terms of story line - but that's all it is - just a narration of the movie.  It doesn't add anything to it, and apart from a few very tiny differences, is identical to the movie. Identical is fine, but a little character development to add some interest wouldn't have gone astray.  This is basically just a kids book.  

Three books finished in a week.. scary..!

Oh, just remembered I read Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl at the weekend too (yes, reading through the box set I got a while back, in chronological order :) )
