Afternoon in February by William Wadsworth Longfellow

“The day is ending, The night is descending; The marsh is frozen, The river dead. Through clouds like ashes The red sun flashes On village windows That glimmer red. The snow recommences; The buried fences Mark no longer The road o’er the plain; While through the meadows, Like fearful shadows, Slowly passes A funeral train. The bell is pealing, And every feeling Within me responds To the dismal knell; Shadows are trailing, My heart is bewailing And tolling within Like a funeral bell.” {source}

I think I have multiple copies of the same book in different formats. 

Books Into Movies ~ Jurassic World

My brother and I went this weekend to see Jurassic World (which was awesome, let me say, though how does someone where heels and run in them when you are being chased by a dinosaur? I don’t understand), and it got me to thinking about the books that are made into movies. So, onto my little rant. I’ve read Jurassic Park and Lost World several times; in fact they are some of my favorite books, and I love the movies. There is some great action in the books, and some heart pounding moments. What I never understand when they make movies from action/adventure books, is why do they change them so drastically? I know that film is a different medium from books (obviously), they could have cut out many of the sciency talks and kept in a lot of the action. If you’ve ever read the books and then watched the movies, they are very dissimilar. There are elements from the book in the movies, but they change a lot of it drastically. Lost World alone is drastically …
