Re: All about us.

Stalker,

I take it you've read The Name Of The Rose then??

What did you think of the movie with Sean Connery, anywhere near the book in terms of accuracy?

Re: All about us.

Well a good question you ask.
Frankly, I read the book only in half. Then, misteriously, I lost the book. Then various circumstances somehow prevented me from acquiring the book again (buying, borrowing from friends) to accomplish my reading. But will I surely once re-read it to the end. What concerns the movie, I should admit that I like very much Sean Connery and deeply respect his work in the above movie. The movie is the movie and it just cannot contain all the plot but, in my opinion, it was close to it in the part of unwinding the detective story of the book but due to the movie format it was unable to contain all necessary historical background.
And Eco is a master of the background which is by itself sometimes is the strongest plot line of his book. The movie only incidentally outlines the argument between Franciscans and all the rest of the Holy Mother Catholic Church ( ) on the interpretation of poverty in the property of the Church in the light of the JC's teaching.

Re: All about us.

HMMM.. thanks for the extra info Stalker. I've seen the movie more than once and enjoyed it but only read extracts form the book over the years never the complete novel. I think I'd better go out and get this book and read it in its entirety LOL!...

Re: All about us.

Hi there everyone. I have been with The Chronicles for a while now and thought it was time to put a few personal details into this thread.

I was born in Surry, England many moons ago! A little village in Hampshire was where I very happily grew up in. (Further details of my childhood may be found in the book ‘I Remember When I Was Young’ pages 287 & 376, I sent in the details to the author, Rob Horlock.) In 1965 my family and I immigrated to Western Australia.
Hobbies are bush walking, reading, ornithology, botany, reading, counted cross-stitch, writing, reading, traveling, knitting, gardening, drawing and reading. Writing stories for my Granddaughters.
Family – I have one son, 3 Granddaughters and 3 step-Grandsons who keep me very busy & another Granddaughter due on 2nd August.

Myself – footloose and fancy free again!

Personality –I have a wicked sense of humour. I also like to be organised.

Likes – If I have the chance I love to go out to the movies or dancing (not waltzing etc). I like to let my hair down as often as I can!

Favourite Authors – Sara Douglass, Robert Jordon, David Eddings, Raymond Feist and Cecilia Dart-Thornton– to name just a few.

Foods – love Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Malaysian and the great Australian BBQ.

Music – varied. Still enjoy the music of the 60’s and 80’s. Some heavy metal, a bit of Gothic and also some classical music.

Thank you preciousssssssss. Just because you have over a thousand more posts than I have! Anyway I like to be called a Newbie - makes me feel even younger!!!!! So there's no need for acting like a mountain goat.
I certainly don't have any 'wrath'!!!

Actually I am a nice person, just have that wicked sense of humour that's all!! Anway, you should know that!!!

Talking Re: All about us.

Couldn't find anywhere other thread to post this in, so here will be great.

As you know I was expecting a Happy Event.

Feeling sooooooooo happy.
I am delighted to anounce the safe arrival of Abbey on 2nd August. A beautiful little girl of 7lb 2oz. Another blessed little sould to love and cherish! Abbey and mother well, father recovering!

So, I now have 4 Granddaughters, 3 teenage step-Grandsons and all of their friends!!

I did my first Grandmother role of babysitting today while Abbey's parents went out for a walk. Guess what I told her we would be doing when she was a little older (if I can wait that long), how we were going to build sandcastles, visiting the zoo to see the hefalumps, telling her fairy stories AND introducing her to the wonderful world of books, especially Fantasy. Oh, I just can't wait!!!

Well must be away soon, so much knitting etc to do for my precious little angel.

Rosemary
