The Sunday Salon: Watching Inception

The movie I'm recommending this week is Inception. I could keep it really simple and just say. Watch this movie. Or I could add a little more to my recommendation. If you like action, watch this movie. If you like drama, watch this movie. If you like suspense, watch this movie. If you like thoughtful, complex plots, watch this movie. If you like science fiction, watch this movie. But is that enough?! It will have to be. Because I'm convinced that you shouldn't know too much about this one! You definitely should avoid spoilers if possible.

Inception is complex, I won't lie. It's one that will take your full attention. But. Once you become hooked, I don't think that will be a problem! Once the story grabs you, you'll be anything but bored. It is so very, very, very intense in places. In just the right way. The characters, the story, the premise. It just works really well.

Have you seen this one? What did you think?

I really enjoyed it, kept me paying attention for the full 2 hours which is unusual for me...I usually go online or something and get distracted! Wasn't a fan of the ending so much.

I really enjoyed this. I actually bought it which is rare for me. :)

I think this was the last movie my husband and I managed to see together! we both like the director very much. I really, really enjoyed this movie tremendously. I like the concept, and how they showed the dreams collapsing and revealing layers beneath. It was fascinating.

Review Policy

I am interested in reviewing books and audio books. This blog focuses on books written for middle grade on up (essentially 10 to a 110). I review middle grade fiction and young adult fiction (aka tween and teen).

I also review adult books.

I read in a variety of genres including realistic fiction, historical fiction, mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy, literary fiction, and chick lit. (I've read one western to date.)

I read a few poetry books, a few short story collections, a few graphic novels, a few nonfiction books.

I am especially fond of:

  • Regency romances (including Austen prequels/sequels)
  • Historical fiction set in the Tudor dynasty
  • Historical fiction and nonfiction set during World War II
  • Jewish fiction/nonfiction
  • dystopias
  • apocalyptic fiction
  • science fiction (especially if it involves time travel and alternate realities)
  • fantasy
  • multicultural books and international books

I am not a fan of:

  • sports books
  • horse books
  • dog books if the dog dies (same goes with most pets actually except maybe fish)
  • westerns (if it's a pioneer story with women and children, then maybe)
  • extremely violent books with blood, blood, and more blood

I am more interested in strong characters, well-written, fleshed-out, human characters. Plot is secondary to me in a way. I have to care about the characters in order to care about the plot. That being said, compelling storytelling is something that I love. I love to become absorbed in what I'm reading.

If you're interested in sending me a review copy of your book, I'm happy to hear from you. Email me at laney_po AT yahoo DOT com.

You should know several things before you contact me:

1) I do not guarantee a review of your book. I am just agreeing to consider it for review.
2) I give all books at least fifty pages.
3) I am not promising anyone (author or publisher) a positive review in exchange for a review copy. That's not how I work.
4) In all of my reviews I strive for honesty. My reviews are my opinions--so yes, they are subjective--you should know my blog will feature both negative and positive reviews.
5) I do not guarantee that I will get to your book immediately. I've got so many books I'm trying to read and review, I can't promise to get to any one book in a given time frame.
6) Emailing me every other week to see if I've read your book won't help me get to it any faster. Though if you want to email me to check and see if it arrived safely, then that's fine!

Authors, publishers. I am interested in interviewing authors and participating in blog tours. (All I ask is that I receive a review copy of the author's latest book beforehand so the interview will be productive. If the book is part of a series, I'd like to review the whole series.) Contact me if you're interested.
