Random Factoid #82

18 10 2009

In the now rare occasion that I read a book that isn’t about to be released as a movie, I can’t help but cast the movie in my head.  Not only that, but I also imagine how the cinematography would look and how the score behind it would sound.  For example, when I read “Fahrenheit 451,” I cast Edward Norton as Guy Montag.

In this case, I also imagined the books that would be burned.  I’d throw in some of the banned books like “The Catcher in the Rye” and “Harry Potter,” but of course, I’d have to cut to a few of my least favorite books.  I’d burn every copy of “The Lovely Bones.”
