I read the Ruby Red trilogy almost 2 years ago. I really enjoyed these books, they’re really great ! I plan on re reading them, probably in 2016. That’s why you won’t find any reviews for these on my blog nor on my goodreads page.
So if you haven’t heard of this great trilogy, you can read Ruby Red’s synopsis here. About the story, I’m just gonna say a few words : London, time travel and a witty main character.
I watched this movie twice. The first time, it was in German with french subtitles and the second, dubbed in french.
I really enjoyed this movie. As far as I remember the book’s story, they did change a few things, but otherwise it was really similar.
I think the actors were really well chosen. Maria Ehrich is an amazing Gwen Sheperd and Jannis Niewöhner is also a great Gideon de Villiers. That’s pretty how I imagined them so that’s nice. In fact, I think all the casting was well chosen.
The settings are gorgeous. Well, since it takes place in London, I’m probably not being objective. (you all know my love for London, right ?) I like that you get to see it nowadays and how it was many years ago. That was really interesting. Same thing goes for the clothing ! So funny to see them dressed for another time.
Now about the plot. As I said before, I read the book two years ago. So I forgot a lot of things, naturally.
But it’s a lot similar and I do appreciate it. I think it’s a good movie adaptation.
Now, I have Sapphire Blue in blu ray, I just need to find time to watch it !
Have you read this book ? Did you like it ? What are your thoughts on the movie adaptation ?
