Daily Prompt: Books



“Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.” 
― Gustave Flaubert

    Gone With The Wind and Inferno?
    I like you!

      Really? 😉 honestly I liked GWTW a LOT more the other one


      • shreyapunj · September 14, 2013

        Me too.
        Personally, I felt Inferno was overwhelmingly detailed about Dante’s work. Akin to a history lesson.

        GWTW is a love story and so much more. Which girl has not swooned and dreamt of her own Rhett Butler after all?


        • KG · September 14, 2013

          My thoughts exactly and GWTW is more enjoyable when you see the movie after reading the book. Loved the movie too. One of the rare times when a book matches the movie in its appeal

            Unfortunately these times are very rare.
            I fail to understand just how difficult is it to show what has been written without adding unnecessary gimmicks!

            Another movie and book combo i loved was Angels And Demons.

              True on both accounts
