Book Things – A Poem

Reading_by_talewhisper

Turn the pages,

Indulge,

In man’s creation of worlds, people, and places.

Playing God,

As reader’s emotion rages,

Across imagination

With each word, sentence, chapter each of them embraces

Until disillusioned hearts return to reality

With stories that forever leave fading traces.


img_20161107_161203 I was emotionally distraught when I watched Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. It was nothing like the book(s). I mean… Tim Burton basically thrust us into an alternate version of the story, shorter and overly dramatic (I’m looking at you Samuel “Mr Barron” L Jackson) with a couple of plot holes I would have willfully missed if I wasn’t so preoccupied with how not like the book the movie was. I think I’ll wait for it to come out on DVD (or whatever) and re-watch it as a stand alone alternate universe.

The graphics were amazing though so well done on a visually appealing narrative.

*rant hasn’t even begun yet.

  1. My brother, who is 67, had the same reaction to the film as you did. He promised to never watch a movie from the series again because he knew it would only anger him and finished the series (to date) instead. He said the young kids in the theater who HADN’T read the book loved the special effects, but he walked away feeling cheated and disgusted.

  2. The poem is lovely–special, in fact.
