Bag of Bones

Post by ahmafor3 » Thu Dec 29, 2011 3:51 pm

I DVR'ed A&E's Bag of Bones series with Pierce Brosnan and thought it was ok but not as good as what I was expecting from the previews.

Has anyone read Stephen King's Bag of Bones book?

Is it worth reading after seeing the movie? I am sure there was a lot left out of the movie and was hoping the way it ended was on a happy note.

Sorry if I posted this question in the wrong place. :oops:

I watched both shows on TV For it was good but it was kind of silly, out of 1 to 10 I would rate it a 7

I didn't see the movie, but I absolutely recommend the book!

I've often found that with rare exceptions, pretty much everything made from his books as far as movies/TV specials go, are not as good as I wish. He just puts so much more into the books that cannot possibly be conveyed on the screen effectively.

yep I agree Kitt! after watching the first part I wasnt to sure I was going to watch the second part. seems like it just drug on and on and then towards the end all the secrets were rushed out and revealed.

Thanks Felix! After I finish a few books I have started I will definitely get Bag of Bones.

I really wanted to watch that movie. Saw the ad on TV & I should have marked it immediately. That will teach me!

I have to admit that I recorded it and we turned it off after 30 minutes. The books are always good, but those movies just can't touch the book. I thought it was silly. DH tolerated it for my sake, but I noticed he was playing Angry birds on the iphone through most of it :lol:
