This review is from: Hogfather [DVD] (DVD)
This was a big disappointment. I thought the script failed to capture the intelligence and humour of the book and the acting was unconvincing. It may well be impossible to suspend disbelief for a film version in the same way that we can immerse ourselves happily in the book. This wasn't even a good try.

Loved it despite the, to me, obscure religious references. Yiddish noir?

One of the most helpful and inspiring books for writers that I've come across. I especially liked the quotes at the end from very famous writers saying just how HARD it is to write.

Good writing, great insights. I was in a museum recently and realised I was walking under an arch of whale jawbones. I found myself remembering this book and was grateful for the richness it brought to those dry bones.

I don't know if I had a children's edition all those years ago but this was not as I remembered it. A lot darker for one thing and I don't remember him being a castaway for so long. Still full of odd moments

4.0 out of 5 stars Fill it up, 26 Aug. 2013

I think this needs to be filled up more than I filled mine otherwise the sides droop onto the surrounding grass and the snails climb aboard. Lost all my kale to the little beggars. Better luck next year.

So what? It was a not very engaging love story with not very interesting people. The tone was a off, the violence didn't really come over as mattering very much. No 'bite'.

I wanted to wash my hands after trying to read this. I understand that makes me 'vanilla' but I prefer something a little more tasteful.

Competently written with a light touch. The plot was straight forward. I'm not sure how true to French life it was.
