    Well congrats to gavin on his third win. I hope he goes for a streak next week. Also, what were McCarthy’s novels based on, vj? I hope they are not like war related stories or so. In other words what sort of themes do McCarthy’s books explore?

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, I sure can’t give you a short answer on McCarthy’s themes but maybe you’ve seen “No Country for Old Men”? That was based on his novel by the same name.

      So the 2 writers did get FJ, just as we were speculating earlier today. I was thinking they wanted both names so I was a bit surprised when just the last name was accepted, but then I realized that was my own misperception. I hope Gavin wins a few more games, too.

        Ah yes, I remember that movie, No Country for old men. Though I do have to watch it on hulu or netflix if I can find it. Also if you remember Jane Austen/’s pride and prejudice was also based o nthe 2005 movie starring Kiera Knightly and Judi Dench. I was also hoping that Lady Chatterly’s lover was also made into a movie. But I assume that you are also a fan of romance movies? What other movies are you a fan of that are based on the books?

          @Lou, I know I saw a BBC version of Lady Chatterley, must have been in the early 90s, but here’s a link to the trailer of the BBC’s latest adaptation (2015).

          Some of the film noirs I’ve been watching lately are based on books. I’m not big on romance movies, I mean just for the sake of a love story. I like historical stuff, but it can be historical fiction and it can have a romance in it.
