I’m the kind of reader who likes to read the book before I see the movie. But if the book isn’t already on my radar, I go to the movies and have no idea about its source text. I didn’t find out until years later that Fight Club, starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, was first a novel by Chuck Palahniuk. Finding that out opened me up, as a reader, to this author’s amazing writing.
Out of this, and because of the myraid young adult novels making appearances on the big screen that I am incredibly excited about, B4UC1T was born. Below you’ll find the full playlist, and below that you’ll find links to show notes, where I offer links and more commentary than you’ll get in the video.
