crossesandguns: cain with a syringe full of poison (Default)
Yesterday’s book sale trip was pretty slow, I only got two books, one of which I’ve already read.

I lost my Earthsea book four years ago(?) at my first dormitory and I haven’t read it since. Looking forward to reading Ged again! I used to be so into this, but now I barely remember anything… I also have Tehanu at home, which I haven’t read yet because I don’t have The Farthest Shore.

Lucked out on Geoffrey of Monmouth! Very fitting since I recently continued watching Merlin.

In other news, I saw Les Miserables at yesterday’s opening night! What can I say? I thought it was FANTASTIC!

But I’ve a feeling that unfamiliar viewers may not enjoy it as much as fans do, because it’s quite long, and there are parts which can be boring. I mean, if you don’t like this type of music, you probably won’t like it. But since my bro and I are huge suckers for this, we ate it up like ravenous wolves etc etc.

those who falter and those who fall must pay the price )

People clapped and cheered and somebody even shouted “Bravo!” afterwards, which was reassuring, because (I love doing that and) nobody clapped when I saw The Hobbit. Sigh. Anyway, when the credits came, applauses were for Hugh, Anne, Sacha and Helena. I clapped for everyone (even Russell), especially for Colm haha. It was nice because the audience was appreciative, truly, the best way to see this film is with Les Mis fans.

We met some of my brother’s film friends, and they started chatting about how it was a very Tom Hooper film, etc. All I know is that it had a lot of long takes, close ups, and too much 45 degree diagonal shots.

Another thing, my pride as a Les Mis fan was injured when the guy next to me wouldn’t stop crying for the whole of the second act?? By the end, he was positively sobbing and I only teared up a couple of times? Maybe watching/listening to it too much has desensitized me already??? ( I think if it was Alfie Boe with Bring Him Home I could have sobbed like that too, maybe.)
