I noticed your comment on Elegance of Fashion about the review for Little Dorrit, and I would have said this on there, but I didn't know if you subscribed or not. Do you usually?

Anyways, you said you were planning on watching it. Did you ever? I just finished watching it, and I really liked it. =) (Except the scenes we fast-forwarded. haha)

I love how the story was made. It was very mysterious and complicating in an interesting way.

Jemimah, it is a unique book, isn't it? I always find it a fun and interesting read. It's different from all the other mysteries I've read!

Melody, gotta love these comments you leave that have nothing whatsoever to do with my post. They make me laugh every time. ;) I do often subscribe, but not every time. No, I haven't seen Little Dorrit. I need to ask Mom about that...hopefully she'll let me! I'm sure it would be great. You should review it! :)

I hope you can watch it soon. Let me know if you do! With me, it was one of those that makes me really involved in the story. For a 7 1/2 hour movie, it's amazing how few parts there are where nothing interesting is happening! And I'd be happy to tell you exactly where you might want to fast-forward. (Our family is very picky when it comes to movies. haha)

Glad you make you laugh. ;-) Maybe I will review it! :) Do you like watching previews/trailers?
