I'm so happy!
About a week ago when he told me his class was starting Gatsby, I expected lots of complaning about how boring, slow, etc. (He's a big non-reader.) Since then I'd ask him how it was going or he'd ask me questions, but I couldn't get much out of him other than an 'it's okay'. I started to wonder if he was even bothering.
Yesterday, though, when I got home he told me they finished and he liked it. Really liked it! Now, he is so excited for the movie. Next week in class they are going to watch the original and he's looking forward to it.
He also told me now he understand when I worry about movie versions of books. He's wondering how are they going to this or that... will they show x or leave it out. Hahaha!
I just had to share.
