They've turned S.J. Watson's best-selling debut novel Before I Go to Sleep into a movie. Strong cast, looks good. But before you go to sleep tonight read what other great authors had to say about the book:
A terrific first novel - well-written, genuinely unsettling and psychologically very plausible. Thrillers seldom come much better than this. Loved it, read it in one - Joanne Harris
Brilliant in its pacing, profound in its central question, suspenseful on every page - and satisfying in its thriller ending - Anita Shreve
Quite simply the best debut novel I've ever read - Tess Gerritsen
A truly amazing debut. The central character, Christine, is beautifully drawn. It's hard to imagine a more compelling, believable and sympathetic portrayal of a damaged human being. I loved it from start to finish - Mo Hayder
Why not give it a go...?

And unfortunately, to answer the C S Lewis immortal question, yes, there are more Elves in it...

There's a couple of big movies coming out in the next few months adapted from big books. Looks like they've thrown quite a lot of money at these flicks...
1st up is David Mitchell's 'unfilmable' Cloud Atlas. Three directors, nearly three hours *gulp* (epic trailer too - clear 6 minutes to view)
2nd is Yann Martel's also 'unfilmable' Life of Pi. Much resting on the stripes of a CGI'd Tiger. Grrrrrooowwwlllll.
As ever, we would urge you to read the wonderful books first!

This 14 year old couldn't get enough of Judge Dredd and the four Dark Judges when he first came across them in 1985... Come 1995 not even Stallone dispensing his own lethal judgement on the character of Dredd could dampen the enthusiasm. Now there's a new attempt to film Dredd with a screenplay by Alex Garland among others although judging from the trailer I wouldn't hold out too much hope for the new movie coming in September but at least it's sent me running back to the glorious 2000AD comics, lovingly collected in a fantastic series.
