January 2014 - Movie and Book Comparison

*UPDATED*

After talking about it with the book club, The Shining is the clear winner for January. I think this is going to be a great discussion group. I would also suggest watching the documentary Room 237 after reading and watching The Shining. I can't recommend it more. It will bring a lot to the discussion table.

The Shining - Stephen King (book)

The Shining (movie)

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/dvd-the-shining-jack-nicholson/3619965?ean=883929091614

I've changed the start time to 6:30PM because I think we will need a little longer to discuss this much material. If we are done earlier than 8, fine, but if not, we have plenty of time for discussion.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me.

    I'm still coming, but the northbound red line is held up for some reason.

    I'm a wimp when it comes to scary books and movies. I thought I could talk myself into it but can't. :(

    I'm out of town longer than expected. Can't wait for next month though.

    I thought I was a big girl, and re-reading this made me realize I can still get freaked out like I did 25 years ago when I first read the Shining!

    I thought The Shimming was going to be an option. :-(
    Also I'm currently watching The Daily Show and just saw a preview for the Book Thief. I had zero idea they were making a movie of it!

      Well in that case my vote is The Shimming (Also known as the The Shinning).

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
