What You Don't Know About Charlie Outlaw by Leah Stewart
What You Don't Know About Charlie Outlaw - Leah Stewart

Charlie Outlaw is a celebrity. His rise to fame has been an enjoyable one despite the attendant problems of becoming famous and never being able to go anywhere every again, but unfortunately his rising star coincides with the fall in fortunes of his girlfriend Josie Lamar. She was the star of a cult tv-series, but has failed to match that in the years since the show's end. At the start of the novel this has caused them to break up and after some ill-chosen words during what should have been a puff-piece interview, Charlie is on the run to 'find himself'.

Charlie picks an obscure island nation and tells no one where he is going and ends up kidnapped. Meanwhile Josie is doing some soul-searching of her own and discovers that she needs to find Charlie, little knowing what she is going to find out. Both of them will be severely tested before they get through their ordeals. Stewart builds up a microcosm of Hollywood and creates empathetic and strong characters in Charlie and Josie. Almost eight months later, much of the book has faded from memory, but while it was happening it was hard to put down.

Is this chick lit? If so, I might be in favor of more of this.

"They seek him here, they seek him there ..."
The Scarlet Pimpernel - Emmuska Orczy,Gary Hoppenstand
The Scarlet Pimpernel - Stephen Crossly,Emmuska Orczy

Oh, what a glorious prelude to the 2018 Summer of Spies.

 

Maybe not a "spy" novel in a narrower sense, but writing in 1902 and leagues ahead of her time, Orczy created the first book of what would become a series of perfect swashbucklers, starring a power couple in which the heroine is every bit her partner's equal and then some.

 

Indeed, cleverly Orczy even tells this book's story chiefly from Marguerite's point of view, which not only has the benefit of keeping the first-time reader (though ... is there such a creature, in this day and age, when it comes to this particular novel?) unaware of the Scarlet Pimpernel's identity as long as possible, but also gives Marguerite an added reason to hurtle all the way to France in Sir Percy's pursuit once she has cottoned onto (1) his alias, and (2) the fact that Chauvelin has unmasked him as well and is now hunting for him in turn.  After all, the narrative perspective would go to hell in a handbasket if Marguerite were to just stay at home and gnash her teeth, anxiously awaiting her husband's safe return -- whereas this way, Orczy is able to present her as a woman of action ... even if, for the most part, it looks like the much-touted "cleverest woman in Europe" is stumbling blindly after her husband and Chauvelin in their respective tracks and comes darned close to ruining Sir Percy's whole enterprise, not to mention imperiling the life of her beloved brother Armand, to whose assistance Sir Percy had rushed off to begin with (well, that and in order to finish the job of getting the de Tournay family safely across the Channel).

 

No wonder, in any event, that the reading public soon demanded a sequel -- and Marguerite  and Sir Percy would soon also find their way onto the silver screen.  The rest, as they've never said more truly than here, is history ...

Another short meme

1. Favorite book-to-screen adaptation?

The Circle by Mats Strandberg and Sara Bergmark Elfgren. I think the movie was actually better than the book, which wasn't bad either.

2. Movie tie-in covers yay or nay?

Maybe?

3. Book you most want to see adapted to screen?

Almost anything by Diana Wynne Jones and the other books in the Circle series.

16 Tasks of the Festive Season: Square 6 - Sinterklaas / St. Nicholas’s Day / Krampusnacht: Can you say angelic?

Youtube: 1980 TV adaptation trailer

 

Book themes for Sinterklaas / St. Nicholas’s Day / Krampusnacht: A story involving children or a young adult book.

 

I was introduced to this story by its 1980s TV adaptation starring Alec Guinness and Ricky Schroder, which was a runaway success in Germany when first broadcast on TV and has long since become a holiday tradition -- it just isn't Christmas without it.  I've long since read (and reread) the actual book, which I love almost as much as the movie adaptation ... I admit this is one where I actually prefer the movie, thanks in no small part to Sir Alec, though possibly also to some extent simply because it was the first version I experienced. -- That said, this year for a change I decided to listen to the audio version read by Johanna Ward, which I also enjoyed tremendously.
