I know this blog is about books, writing and book to TV/Movie adaptations but in this case I feel like Startford-upon-avon should be mentioned here since it’s William Shakespeare’s hometown. Shakespeare’s work has been used and reused for centuries now and inspired so many writers. So Stratford-upon-avon is a nice and quiet town. There are a lot of old buildings, theaters and a beautiful park next a river. The guided tour I had was surprisingly very interesting - I didn’t expect to learn so much about Shakespeare and the city. - so if you ever visit you must do it. It’s the perfect place for a weekend visit.
If any of you has been to Stratford-upon-avon I would very much like to know what did you think of it?
Niagara was sort of the first place I went to once I got to Toronto, I initially planned on staying overnight there but I quickly changed my mind. The city is not as big as I hoped and it felt like it was half way between a “mediocre” Las Vegas and Disney village in Disney World Paris. The weather was beautiful though, hot and sunny, which made the ride by the fall even better because the fresh mist from the falls were just what I need that day.
I probably should have stayed over night, maybe Niagara by night is fun who knows.

The movie is out on October 17th (USA), I will probably check out because the cast looks good. its stars Jennifer Garner, Ansel Elgort, Adam Sandler and Emma Thompson. The movie is based on a novel - that I never heard about - by Chad Kultgen, who also wrote the controversal The Average American Male (2007) - I’ve heard of that one! I don’t know if I’ll read the book, I already have so much to read and so little time do it. What do you think?

The King’s Speechtells the story of Albert Frederick Arthur George, King George V of the United kingdom of Great Britain and Nothern Ireland’s second son. The movie follows Albert’s journey in overcoming his speech impairment and ascension to the throne.
4 Oscars, 7 BAFTAs but it took me almost 4 years to watch it. I’m glad I did. The movie is exquisite, it has a very intimate feel to it. It’s very character orientated, turning the emerging World War II and Edward VIII abdication into a mere contextual mater. Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth are just brilliant, their portrayal felt true.
Overall, I really liked the movie but the only thing that surprised me was how Guy Pearce’s character (Edward VIII) appeared. Edward VIII is presented, in this movie, as a party boy who was more interested in keeping his twice divorcee girlfriend happy than ruling the kingdom. This might have been true but it felt weird because I know him as the one monarch who married for love. It also made Albert look like he was subjected to the throne.
