19 May 2006 "Hoot" by Carl Hiaasen
 |  Category: Uncategorized  | Tags:

I enjoyed reading when I was little, but when I got into junior high and I was required to read for school, and books that they picked out for us, I quickly lost interest in reading. I’m always amazed by people who love to read and spend their spare time reading. So last summer I got myself back into reading and love it!

I just finished reading “Hoot.” It’s out in theatres now, but I wanted to read the book before going to see it. I absolutely loved the movie “Because of Winn Dixie,” I saw it 3 times. And I recently got that book too, but I’m having such a hard time reading it since I’ve already seen the movie and know what to expect.

I didn’t want to do that with Hoot since I have heard it is such a great story. And it is! The book kept my attention the whole time. There are a couple of curse words in the book, and then it’ll just say, “So and so said a few curse words.” I’m hoping that they use no language or little if necessary in the movie. I just think it’s unnecessary to get a point across. You can describe someone’s anger without using fowl language.

The story l ine is great, and I hope the movie captures it just as well as it is written by Carl Hiaasen. Tim is coming in town today so maybe I can get our family to go watch it before he leaves Saturday evening.

    That book is soo great but I don’t think the movie did it justice from what I have seen in the previews.

    I can’t even remember the previews for it. I haven’t seen a preview since I started reading the book. I’m interested to see the movie and see what all they put in, left out and added to the story.
