I liked it.

For those of you for whom this doesn’t work, try this.

(Spoiler Warning: The comments discuss the ending. See the movie first, then participate!)

    Hahaha, I totally didn’t see the electric eyes coming. Excellent comedic timing!

    I also loved the movie, though I wish Harold Crick had died. In my humble opinion, it would have been a better ending.

    Finally, I was entranced by the straight vertical line the right side of your wall map made. And, how it almost completely lined up with the straight vertical line the left side of your hairline made.

    I think that I liked it just the way it was. We got to see a change in Ms Eiffel’s character, as she completed the “getting outside of one’s routine” idea with breaking away from ALWAYS killing people at the end of her books. I liked how she struggled with it.

    However, I think we can both agree to thank the writer for not subjecting us to one of these:

    Harold: “Ms Pascal, I am going to die tomorrow.”
    Ana: “What? You’re crazy!
    Harold: “No, it’s true! This narrator is telling the story of my life and says that I am going to die tomorrow!”
    Ana: “I am leaving and causing you emotional anguish because I don’t understand what you are going through!

    And I liked how quickly they (Eiffel and Escher) accepted him as not-crazy. Another movie might use that as a ten minute block of sanity-convincing hijinks. Ugh.

    Oh, and excellent hairline/mapline observation!
