Blog Due Monday November 18

Dear Class,

For Monday, you are to complete a one page blog post in which you examine the similarities and differences between the book and the movie.  In particular, you have to explain how the movie changes the meaning of the book through citing specific examples.  You can focus on (but are not limited to) issues of audience, story changes that change the meaning, or how the medium of both the book and movie provides specific limitations or benefits to the story.
