Playing Editor (BTT)

Suggested by John :

How about a chance to play editor-in-chief? Fill in the blanks:

__________ would have been a much better book if __________.

Alright, lets see...

WHITE OLEANDER would have been a much better book if IT WOULD HAVE HAD 200 HUNDRED LESS PAGES!


MIDDLESEX would have been a much better book IF IT HAD TALKED MORE ABOUT THE MAIN CHARACTER AND LESS ABOUT HER FAMILY

LAST BOOK OF THE DARK TOWER SERIES BY STEPHEN KING would have been a much better book IF SOMEONE WOULD NOT HAVE GIVEN AWAY THE ENDING ON THEIR BLOG (SPOILER). I was soooooooooooooo mad. I had spent years reading that series and in one sentence it was undone! If I could have crawled through the screen and choked that person I would have. No warnings any where. The book had just been released--I should have known better.

OMNIVORE'S DILEMMA would have been a much better book IF HE DIDN'T TALK SO MUCH ABOUT CORN. Chapters and chapters about corn. I couldn't each corn for a month.

This was fun this week. I'm going to see if I can think of anymore.

Hey - I know what you mean about "Red Dragon" being an "ok" book. I was actually disappointed with all of them. I think that after seeing the movie "Silence of the Lambs" it's hard to beat it. Speaking of that, have you read "Silence..."? I ask everyone this - did you think that Jodie Foster was the right character choice for Clarice?!

I didn't read SOL. I had the same thought you did that for once the movie would be hard to beat (& of course had other books to read). Out of curiosity though, do you think Jodie Foster was the right choice for Clarice?
