I finished reading Nicholas Nickleby late last night, and absolutely loved it!
I think, because of a time shortage on my part, I'm going to mash my review on The Hunger Games and Nicholas Nickleby together into an upcoming post ;) I promise, it's coming!
I read the book only because I had heard of a good film version, and very much wanted to see it because of.... the casting...... *coughs* I shall refrain from saying more. Dear mother almost never allows us to watch films based on books unless we read the book first.
So, almost grudgingly, I started reading the book.
But what resulted was an eternal love of Dickens, chocolate, and Smike. Nicholas is automatic.
In lieu of a review for a moment, let me just say that I enjoyed Nickleby more than any book I had picked up in awhile. If you haven't read it, I highly urge you to!
At any rate, here is the trailer for the version that I'm watching this week:
And as a bonus......
I found this uproariously hilarious, or else completely annoying, LOTR spoof. I can't stop chuckling over it.
(The POTC 'I've got a Jar of Dirt' vid like this is hilarious too.)
See y'all later!! I'll be back with a review or two, and an acceptance speech!
