Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole series has proven thrilling and suspenseful and is much loved by book fans. To date there are eleven books in the series and we’re about to see Detective Harry Hole (prounounced Hoo-leh) imagined on screen for the first time!

As is often the case with crime adaptations, it’s not the first novel in the Harry Hole series that is being adapted, that was The Bat, written in 1997 but the seventh book, The Snowman, released in 2007 in Norwegian and translated in 2010. This isn’t unusual for crime adaptations, and could mean we see further adaptations if The Snowman is successful! Read More

By | Adaptations, News, Video | No Comments
A Wrinkle in Time is a true American classic and always gets lots and lots of mentions when we’re asking you for your favourite books. The novel, the first in a quintet by Madeleine L’Engle was almost never published, refused many times in the early 1960s because it dealt with difficult themes, because it had a female protagonist, and because publishers couldn’t really define it as either a children’s book, or an adult one.

Anyone who knows anything about Winnie the Pooh knows that Christopher Robin was a real person. Christopher Robin Milne was the son of Pooh author A.A Milne and the child and his toys served as his inspiration for the original Pooh stories.

Now a movie, Goodbye Christopher Robin is to tell the story of his life and the creation of the bear loved the world over. You can expect a certain amount of romanticising from the movie, Christopher himself is documented as saying the Pooh stories blighted his life, but even knowing that it’s hard to imagine he didn’t have the most magical childhood.

Listen to George R.R. Martin Explain Why We Love Fantasy

By | Authors, Video | No Comments
Fantasy is one of the most popular genres in literature, and it’s not hard to see why. Writers like J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling, and Terry Pratchett have taken us on journeys and adventures we could never have imagined. We’ve celebrated Bilbo Baggins’ 111th birthday in the Shire, we’ve had snowball fights in Narnia, played Quidditch at Hogwarts, and lived upon a turtle’s back in Discworld. Fantasy allows us to escape our normal lives and live out the dreams we had as children. Read More
