Famous Five are back?

A few websites have reported that Famous Five, the book we went to sleep with when we were kids, are going to come back on TV. There is also reports of an animated TV series. Check the reports here. They are older and Timmy has died; not to worry, he has a successor. I am sure there would be lot of people eager to watch it, but haven’t we grown out of it. Seeing the interest in Harry Potter, I guess there is still a kid in us. Let us see what they have cooked up, though I think many eager fans would be let down. Let us face it, kids solving crime is cute and five really is a crowd.

Do you see an epic in the making?

Published in such a commercialized world might just turn out to be the undoing of Harry Potter. Would Rowling cave in to the pleadings of young and not so young fans, the demands of publishers and the lure of more money and start working on another series of Harry Potter as she has hinted? I am yet to see a movie that lived up to the hype of a book. Let me rephrase that, most movies based on books I have seen so far has disappointed me to a certain extend, except ‘Jurassic Park’. Even though the book was much better, the movie was good enough to keep you glued to the seat, with no threads hanging lose. When I think about it, almost all novels of Michael Crichton made into a movie has been able to live up to the hype. Now whether I should thank the screenwriter or …

Game of the day – Desktop Tower Defense

Desktop Tower Defense: “Desktop TD is a fun flash based puzzle / strategy game where you have to protect your desktop from invaders by spending money on attacking pieces and building a maze for them to follow. Strangely addictive yet stress relieving… how many levels can you survive?” My takeI wouldn’t call this a stress reliever, it is a good game to take your matter off things, and something interesting to do when you don’t have any work to do. But, “familiarity breeds contempt”; I played this game late into the night yesterday and now, I don’t find myself eager to play it again. But yes, when I am at work, with nothing better to do, I would like to sneak a game or two.

To Kill a Mockingbird

Hey there… I am back again. There was a gap, just a couple of days. First was because I had lost internet connection due to some fault in the line. And yesterday I was reading a book. I am sure many people would be familiar with “To Kill a Mockingbird” by  Harper Lee. I had read it once before, but I had forgotten that I had read it. But it certainly was not a waste reading it. It carries a lot of messages. I will never bother trying to explain what the book is about or what I learnt from it. I could never do it justice and I may not be able to convey what exactly it is that the book conveys. But I am sure that I am enriched by reading it. Even though I may not be able to pinpoint it, I think I will remember about each …

The Third Twin – Ken Follett

I didn’t write anything last night. I was too sleepy. But what was there to write about… Well, I did read a book yesterday, actually read it for the 3rd time. The book was “The Third Twin” by Ken Follett. Not a bad book. But after reading a few of Ken Follett’s books I find that he writes to sell his books. He write about what is currently the most talked about topic and then make a story out of it.This books is a story of a guy who was wrongly accused for rape. But how could the victim identify him positively if he didn’t do it? That is the story. There is someone else who not only looks like him, but who has the same DNA. Is that the whole story? No. His twin is in jail. But there is another twist, his twin does not share his date …
