I just finished reading two books that have already been made into movies. I didn’t go looking for books that had already been made into movies, and I certainly didn’t go looking for books that starred Demi Moore, but that’s what I ended up reading.
I watched both movies when they came out in the 1990s and I remember liking both of them. And I enjoyed each book.
The Juror by George Dawes Green: A single mother and artist is placed on a jury involving a member of the mafia. She is forced to persuade other jurors to vote not guilty by “the teacher.” The movie starred Demi Moore and Alec Baldwin. I remember the movie as being faithful to the book.
Indecent Proposal by Jack Engelhard: A billionaire pays a couple $1 million for one “evening” with the wife. The movie starred Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson, with Robert Redford as the billionaire. I remember the movie as being different from the book even though the premise remained the same.
Both titles are something to consider adding to your summer reading or DVD viewing list. I read both books on my kindle, obtaining the titles from my library.
