MY APOLOGIES!
Seemingly I stepped on some toes and crossed some line(s) - quite unintentionally I might add. For what do I know. I was just expressing my thoughts. And I did say I was beeing absolutely silly, didn't I.
As for the word "perfect": Does it really mean 100%? Can anyone or anything ever be perfect? Can anyone ever assert the claim to be perfect?
I'd rather dare say no-one or nothing is ever perfect.

Hi Roswitha,

no need to apologize, and you did not step on anyone's toes. You're reading far too much into my words. But if that is so I have to apologize if you had the impression you somewhat unintentionally crossed any line. Frankly I couldn't think of any. And if I have to do that moderator thing, I'll say so.

Just like you I was expressing my thoughts. I think that Nat will be a fine actor for this role, but he to me is as a person not like Gamache. That's all. I think Penny writes about someone who seems to be more on the quiet side, more introvert. Don't weigh my words in gold. I am simply discussing stuff. No one has perfect wisdom.... And as I said Nat as an actor will do a fine job, of that I'm absolutely sure. And I think this is what be both believe in, right?

Cheers!

Hi Jess, Hi Roswitha (and Nenne, inspector, Gitta and Net)

when you usually read a book you don´t have in mind "who is going to play the role, when it was a film", do you? But this is what we did.
Comparing the characters, how will Nat play it, will he fit into the role?
Of course he will, otherwise he would not have agreed playing Gamache :P

But does an actor don´t do his best films when he is NOT perfectly like the character he is playing ? When he (or she) has to act like someone who is completely different to themselves? They are skilled for that, this is why they are actors.

So much good, so much evil. Just add water.

Hi Martina,

my thoughts exactly - Nat is a fine actor and he will fill in this role perfectly. I just can't see Penny's writing and say - hey yes, naturally this is Nat's role because his character is like Gamache's.

I know that Nat as an artist is going to do him perfect justice. He is a fine actor and his job is to get him right and he will - undoubtedly. At least we're not going to have discussions like we had with Lynley book fans who complained that "their" hero didn't have the right hair colour... just kidding and being silly myself ;)

Cheers!

Hi :) ,
I just started to read the book. Yesterday before I felt asleep, Gamache appeared. As yet I can't compare him with Nat, but if he's another type, I think, that doesn't matter. I am really sure, that he (Nat) will do a very good job as ever, so that we all will enjoy the movie.
I watched a lot of movies with him with very different characters and he always acted very well.
Greetings
:) :laugh: :)

Hi, everybody! :D

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! Another mystery writer to read. I've been MIA here since I got bogged down in the last EG novel I was reading -- well, actually got sidetracked by other things. :(

But this is great timing for a Canadian writer. I plan to move to Canada depending on who wins this election. :evil: I won't say though. LOL! Just kidding. So I can learn about all things Canadian: beavers, maple syrup, curling, and Inspector Armand Gamache.

See, and who ever said that being a "fan-girl" wasn't an intellectually stimulating proposition?

[walks off singing "O Canada"]

I must have some college friends who have migrated to McGill. I'll see if I can shake the bushes and find someone to DVR/tape the movie when it comes out. Can't promise anything though. :)

I'm lazy so I haven't checked on the links; do we know when the movie is being aired? Or is it just starting production? Seems like the latter.

Hugs,
Lynn
:) :D :)
