I AM SO P#*#ed OFF!!!!!
Every morning I run out to my car in great anticipation. What will happen next!? I was very carefully not to read any reviews. I didn't want anything spoiled for me. Because of this I would be driving along and suddenly almost scream out to the DVD player - "NO! I can't believe it!" I'd be shaking my head in disbelief. The story had sucked me so far in that I almost felt like it was an actual part of my life. I would be nodding my head in agreement at different parts (the books evolved around a family AND around dogs). There were times that I would pull up to work and have to collect myself for a moment before going in because I would be in tears.
I found myself going out for lunch more, just so that I could listen to the book. I told all my co-workers at work about it. One of my friends who is pregnant is looking for a book to listen to when she is at the hospital going into labor. I told her, "This is the book! It will certainly distract you!"
The narrators voice was perfect and I think that the sound of it even lulled my terriers into a sleepy silence in the car. I found myself worrying that I might get in a car accident because I was so entranced.
At Christmas time I told my nieces about it because they too, adore books.
So I was nearing the end. I knew there would be sadness but I found myself sobbing as I drove home one night. This was getting ridiculous! I brought the book discs inside and sat on the sofa and listened. I spent the evening, sitting up, laying down, pacing and sitting down again. How would this spin down and END!?
Then the last disc.
I was SO ANGRY!
I've deleted it off of my profile as one of my favorites! If it's made into a movie, I WILL NOT go see it!!!!!
I text my sister. "REMEMBER THAT BOOK?"
and she text me back "Finish it?"
and I back to her "Yes! & I'm so PISSED!!!" (Pardon me, but that's what I sent to her)
and she sent back to me "Why? Did Simba's dad die?"
My sister has a dry sense of humor and she knows that I avoid any kind of kids movie that have anything to do with animals. She remembers me running from the room when Simba's dad died, so.....
I text her back - "Yes! And also Simba and
Simba's dog and
the old man and
the old man's son was blinded!"
So, I'm NOT telling the title and including a SPOILER ALERT.
I'm just ranting but....
If you really want to know what book it was, just email me.
I just needed to RANT and from now on I'm reading all the reviews and MAYBE the last few pages of any book. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
