    Wow! That’s great! This book is set in my home town of Ljubljana, Slovenia! I would be great if they shot it here (probably not- but hey a girl can dream!)….just hope they don’t mess it up…
    Kate I’m not so sure about…Keira would be better…

    The movie sounds really interesting.

    I really don’t like Paulo Coelho’s book, but I think a good director can make a good movie from some of his books

  • Miss Vex

    The book’s theme is so complex. Its also boring. I don’t know how it would be like in a motion picture. It teaches a good thing about life though. Well, that’s what Paolo Coehlo’s good at. I’ll wait for the trailer and see if I will watch the movie or not. :)

    Aw, Jared, you’re mean. Here you go making us think she was finally going to take one for the team, and you go and tell us she’s going to screw up another movie role.

    Okay, that was mean. But everyone else was thinking it, I’m just saying it.

    Paulo Coelho should have never given anybody the chance to make movies out of his books!!!!

    There will be a party at Orlando’s house immediately following the event.

    It’s quite funny that Coelho finally let him someone turn one of his books into a movie since he had been advertising his ‘I will never let anyone make a movie of any of my books because that would devastate what my readers imagine while reading them’ policy. Hm. But I still love him though. And I am also happy a bit cause I don’t like this book that much, if they **** it up, it won’t be a disaster to me. :)
