On Saturday we saw "Bridge to Terabithia", and liked it well enough, though it wasn't at all the movie I was expecting, or the movie that had been advertised. It is not really a fantasy story at all, just a coming of age tale with a lot of time devoted to the power of imagination. The part of Leslie required a definite radiance that AnnaSophia Robb actually HAD, all probability to the contrary.
Following "Blood and Chocolate", I read two more werewolf themed novels, "Moon Called" and "Blood Bound", both by Patricia Briggs. These are first rate contemporary fantasy novels; they get as much right, and less wrong, than the early Anita Blake books (a series I once loved have since stopped reading). Read these books. Really.
