: Hi, Dana!
: What I loved most about the book are the descriptions of the land & lake. I could just see the Glimmerglass, and the wonderful abode in the center of it. I want to live in a house like that...except for I want mine to have hot & cold running water, electric lights, and a microwave! ;o)
I was glad to hear you say that what caught your attention in the book was more the scenery than the characters. I was totally drawn into the place, but found myself having a hard time feeling much at all for the characters. The area described is near where I spent a lot of my childhood, and the descriptions just yanked me right back in time. No, not quite the early 1700s. I'm not *that* old yet. I think that was what first appealed to me about the movie too. NC did a good enough job of portraying NY that it took me back to my childhood fantasies- dashing heroes saving damsals in distress, etc.
Back to the book... BTW how many chapters were we supposed to read?
