On the bandwagon, in a casual way

In doing a little research lately I’ve seen the need to check ‘In Cold Blood’ by Truman Capote out of the local library. I do have interest in seeing the acclaimed film Capote, but have actually checked his well known book out by necessary coincidence rather than due to Oscar hype.

I must say, I read the first 43 pages last evening in visual gulps, thoroughly enjoying his command of descriptive prose. There are lessons to be learned through his words and I am an enthusiastic student.

  1. I read the book when it first came out and liked it. Rent the old movie if you can. Robert Blake was mesmerizing.

  2. We saw the film when it came out, and I was incredibly impressed with Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s performance. I’ve had an eye on his career ever since he played a small part on an episode of Law & Order years ago — it is nice to see him so well cast and garnering so much praise for a great job.

    Thank you for reminding me that I’ve been meaning to check the book out of my local library, too!

  3. Jen, the Film Capote with Phillip Seymour Hoffman is excellent, i advise you to go and see if you can get hold of a copy, it made me go and get a copy of In Cold Blood, so the other way round to you, if you really like the book, HMV are selling it for just £2.99 in there stores

  4. Hi all!

    I definitely want to see ‘Capote’ and I’m intrigued to see the film adaptation of ‘In Cold Blood’ as well. (I probably saw the old Law & Order episode – I was once a fan of the show too.)

    Thanks for the tip on HMV Ande!
