Escape to Murray River book. Read 3 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Book 1 in the Adventures Down Under for middle-grade readers. Twelve-year-old Patrick McWaid's world is turned upside down when his father is framed for a crime and sent on a prison ship to Australia in The family.
There's something living beneath New York City, and it's not happy we've woken it up. Creepy and disturbing in all the right ways! Murray and Darren Wearmouth [ Along the way, they plant the seeds for sequels and craft a tight, pulse-pounding story that practically cries out for a film adaptation.
I highly recommend this. Murray many years to get his debut thriller Awakened finally published It was well worth the wait. The thriller is a page-turning great debut. Overall, I thought it was a fun and thrilling read. Recommended for you. The Brink by James S.
Sword of Kings by Bernard Cornwell. Full Throttle by Joe Hill. Written by garykmcd. Having just taken eighth-graders who read the book to see the premiere, everyone left the theater disappointed with what director Kil Kenan and screenwriter Caroline Thompson have given us with this translation from the page to the screen.
Thompson, an accomplished screenwriter, deserves more of the blame in their and my opinion. Books rarely translate better to film and this one suffers for many reasons. Jeanne DuPrau's book is an amazing trove of metaphors candles, the library, the seed, the Pipeworks, and the city itself. When works of literature work on multiple levels, the filmmakers should at least offer us more than one.
In fact, this book could be a metaphor for metaphors -- there are things below the surface that exist whether we acknowledge them or not; it is our job to find the tools to excavate the "deeper" level of what exists for others only on the surface. Having sacrificed the novel's intellectual depth, the film version does a great disservice to the dedicated reader: we are given special effects that defy logic and re-focus the story unnaturally and unnecessarily; there are included scenes of hyped-up action they are neither satisfying nor helpful with advancing the plot; we lose some of the intricate details of character development; there's an unnecessary inclusion of giant scary creatures that offer distracting and bizarre thrills; and the mystery of what Ember is is destroyed in the first minute of narration.
The design of the film is great, but as in design, the beauty is found in the details. I believe that the greatest details of the book are missing, hidden away like the people of Ember.
