    Ok then, I nominate The Prestige by Christopher Priest (I'd nominate a different one, but copies are difficult to come by). I can count on one hand how many people I know who read Priest's work, so I figured I'd try and share it with you all.

    Is the movie The Prestige based on this book?

    Is the movie The Prestige based on this book?
    Yup, but it's totally different from the movie. It's the only film adaptation of a novel that I can say is equally as amazing as the novel, though both are strictly different.

    Even if it's not chosen for Libro #3, read it; you're doing yourself a favor.

    Thank goodness it's different, because honestly - I hated the movie.

    I think we must have, because I disagree with everything up there. Maybe I should start a discussion thread, as I'd love to hear more of why you didn't like it.

    I can take you hating on the Titanic (I mean, because of your childhood boating accident and all) but The Prestige? I wish you were playing Wolves with us so I could lynch you.

    And who do you think is the cause of that? Just sayin'.

    And holy crap, we have gone way off topic.

    I didn't hate that film, personally, but I am certainly not shocked, either, by anyone who did. It's really not so great.

    It seems to either be a love or hate, for the most part.

    I get that film mixed up with The Illusionist, because I saw them at about the same time. I cant remember which one is which, exactly, but I know that I liked one, and didnt care much about the other.

    Which one was about the childhood sweethearts that were separated and then rejoined through the magicians act later in the movie?

    Thats the one I liked.

    With Edward Norton? That's The Illusionist.

    Yep Edward Norton, thats it. Honestly, I don't think I remember The Prestige. I might have to revisit it. I would definitely read it though. Even if I didn't like the movie, as I don't judge a book by its movie.....at all.

    I would like to read the book, though, now that you mention it.
