We’ve been experiencing several small glitches during December and January as we’ve been working hard to improve everything about Postertext. One of those glitches was with our blog which meant no new posts for quite a while. Thankfully, we’ve got the blog back on track and we will be posting daily articles from now on. I hope you missed the blogs as much as I missed posting them!
So let’s break in the Postertext blog today with a familiar topic: movies based on books. It seems that November through January have been big months for great films that are renditions of amazing books! I have compiled a list of several of the more popular ones:
- A no brainer is Peter Jackson’s film The Hobbit, which is based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s famous book.
- A lot of people were really looking forward to the Life of Pi film based on the book of the same title by Yann Martel, but there seemed to be a lot of controversy about it. Some claimed there was way too much CGI in the film and others said it deviated too much from the true message of the book. What do you think?
- Although the recently released Les Miserables film is based more on the musical, we can’t forget the inspiration for both originally come from Victor Hugo’s incredible novel!
- And finally, David Mitchell’s book Cloud Atlas has also hit the silver screen in a visually enticing movie by the same name.
As always, I would love to hear your thoughts on them. Did you like the film? Do you feel it adequately represented the books? What would you change about the films? Happy reading and watching! :)

Controversies over awards have been going on for a long time. As always, there are winners and losers, and more often than not the losers will feel particularly unsatisfied with the situation involving a fellow writer smugly receiving a huge cash award for his work. In most cases, dissatisfaction is pushed out of the way and graciousness towards the winner is brought forward. Not so much in the context of author Philip Roth who is perhaps most famous for his novel Goodbye, Columbus. Roth was the honored winner of the Man Booker International Award (awarded only every two years to an author who has contributed to the world stage), but unfortunately there is a dissenter in every group of assenters and in this case it came in the form of judge Carmen Callil who was less than overjoyed at this turn of events – not to mention not very polite about them either – as you can see by this article. For anyone who has read Philip Roth perhaps you agree wholeheartedly with Callil’s statement, or perhaps you feel that she has overstepped her boundaries and spoke too condescendingly. Read and comment!

I’m proud to announce Postertext has been mentioned in Vanity Fair Spain. Thank you, Eva Lamarca for writing about us!
This is great news considering we’ve done zero advertising since our business started in July 2010. We must be doing something right for Postertext to grow through solely word-of-mouth.
A big ‘thank you’ to all who have helped spread the Postertext name. If you haven’t already, tell your friends and family about us! If they are as avid readers as you are, they will love our book posters.
See below for the mention in Vanity Fair. Beware: It’s in Spanish
