Fiction to Film: April 2016

Posted April 14, 2017 by Whitney in fiction to film / 2 Comments

It seems that each year, more and more films and television shows are adapted from books and time and time again, I am drawn to them. To embrace this growing fascination I’ve decided to create a monthly post entitled Fiction to Film highlighting books that are hitting the big screen.

The Lost City of Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as "savages," the determined Fawcett - supported by his devoted wife, son and aide de camp returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925.

    • I have The Circle and The Lost City of Z on my bedside table at the moment, although I have yet to start either. Are you enjoying The Circle? the description and trailer look really interesting.
