Question about “A Simple Plan” movie vs. book.
13 sverdo Oh shit, he's making a fourth one? I read the original trilogy as a kid and it was probably the first book that I really enjoyed! How are they for an adult reader? I basically forgot everything, so I might as well re-read them!
6 taueret o holy crap, I did not know this. I love those books so hard that my youngest is named Lyra :-)
2 Bior37 This is one of the few series that made me cry and I picture scenes from it to this day. I hope it'll be as good as the first 3.
1 WriterMcwriteface Eh, I'm lukewarm at this time. I read the series after I was in my thirties so a lot of the coming-of-age themes were not particularly resonant with me - I had the same issue when I read Ender's Game for the first time, as I was already an adult with a firmly rooted sense of identity. To be fair, I really liked it - there's a lot to enjoy about the world and the stories being told. I even named my development server Pantalaimon. I don't feel the series middled very well. It started off very strongly in *Compass,* but I felt it got a little wobbly on the trotters in *Knife.* I spent most of *Spyglass* feeling like Pullman was beating me on the nose with a rolled up newspaper screaming "THIS. IS. SUBTLE. METAPHOR!!!!!!" but after a fairly literal deus ex machina it stitched up the pieces fairly well. The ending was about the loveliest gut-punch I've ever had the pleasure to read. I'm open to the idea of another good yarn coming from him, but I'm afraid he's going to make like Neal Stephenson.
2 FireLucid I think I will read the original trilogy, then the new one once its all out. I'm not a fan of the wait between books where the details get a little hazy. If GRRM ever gets the final book out, I'll read the whole thing in one go. I've read the current ones, but it's been so long and the show has muddied the waters further.
1 SephChasseur I had no idea! I am currently reading the Subtle Knife again and now I'm even more hyped for a new one
1 nillethere I am super excited as well! I've been rereading the original trilogy in preparation, as it's been about 10 years since I last read the series - about to start The Amber Spyglass.
1 SuddenGenreShift I'll be happy if they're good, but I'm a little skeptical. The series was already tied up very well, what's left to say?
1 asromatifoso Just read the trilogy a few months ago (I know-very late to the party). Loved the first, liked the second one quite a bit, and thought the third was meh, so diminishing returns. I will definitely read the next but not crazy happy as you put it.
