ok ¿cuándo empezamos con la producción de la película? ¿Morgan Freeman cuando llega al set?

Este es el tipo de película que me hubiera encantado ver cuando era chica. Digo película, porque en ese tiempo no leía.

Historias como esta le falta a los niños de esta época, algo sencillo con ese ligero toque de fantasía que lleva el libro a un nivel... *-*

En serio, necesitamos películas basadas en libros como este y no solo para los niños.

Original de: El Extraño Gato del Cuento

Tengo una malísima memoria, demasiado mala, da un poco de vergüenza de tan mala qué es. Entonces, para poder reseñar un libro, tiendo tomar apuntes, pero a veces, ni siquiera con eso es suficiente. Por lo que decidí sería buena idea hacer resúmenes en un cuaderno y así recordar el libro, sobre todo si es el de una serie. Fácil en teoría. Lo hice bastante rápido con Into a Million Pieces, luego lo intenté con The Seventh Most Important Thing... ya había terminado una hoja y no podía pasar del primer capítulo con tanto detalle que quería poner, le agregaba más y más y más. Al final no pude hacer un pequeño resumen, así de impresionante este es.

Me gusta cuando los libros van directo al punto, este lo hace, empieza segundo antes que Arthur decida tirar la piedra. Yo sinceramente creí que la historia se desarrollaría únicamente alrededor del porqué, pero no.

Se me hizo tan fácil ver The Seventh Most Important Thing adaptada a ese tipo de películas que ves de pequeñ@ y se vuelve tu favorita durante años, luego la olvidas para que de la nada de adulto re aparezca y vuelvas a recordar todo lo que la historia te conmovió.

Tengo un lugar especial para las historias que tienen como protagonistas a ancianos y niños, lo comente una vez cuando tuve que vivir algo muy triste, siento un gran cariño por lo viejitos. Eso de "me llevo mejor con gente mayor que yo", lo llevó al extremo. Las abuelos tienen tanto que contar. Shelley Pearsall trae una historia real adaptada, Junk Man o Chatarrero, existió en la vida real, y sus siete cosas más importantes también. ¿Qué son? ¿Por qué lo son? Tienes que leer el libro.

The Seventh Most Important Thing es de los libros que me dejan sin palabras, me emocionó demasiado poder leerlo, ojalá te animes a leer también, a pesar que no sé que escribí en esta reseña jajaja

3.5 2018 Caudill. I love an anti-hero and Arthur Owens qualifies. He is in 7th grade when his father dies suddenly in a motorcycle accident brought on by drinking and driving. Suddenly his world goes from stable to shaky as he and his younger sister adjust to the death, their mother changing jobs, and the questionable reputation his father left behind. When Arthur's mother gets rid of all his father's things and Arthur sees the local Junk Man wearing his father's motorcycle cap, impulse takes over and Arthur heaves a brick in the old man's direction, hitting him and knocking him down. Arthur spends 3 weeks in juvie, appears in court and is sentenced to probation working with/for the Junk Man, James Hampton. What develops next is an unpredictable friendship and string of events that rehab Arthur better than any "jail time" can. Arthur must take over the responsibility of finding the 7 most important things: all trash items that Hampton is using to build "heaven." After his time in WWII, he was determined to make something beautiful out of all the broken bits of life. His throne of heaven is wood, cardboard, light bulbs, glass, cans, all covered in shiny foil. I picture something out of City Museum. However, this part of the book is true and the book includes a picture of the Throne of the Third Heaven created by James Hampton and housed in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, which was the idea for this book. With "St. James'" mentoring and a cast of other completely fictional characters: Groovy Jim the tattoo artist, Officer Billie his carmel-corn making parole officer, Squeak, his new and unlikely best friend, and Roger his mother's new boyfriend, Arthur comes to terms with his father's death, his bad choices in life, and the possibility that he is still worthy of heaven. Sweet and spare story about the little things that make a difference. 2 quotes from the true story are imparted to Arthur: "Where there is no vision, the people perish" and "Fear Not." Great lessons for anyone. ( )

Though this was a quick read, it lacked characters with huge amounts of depth. The beginning is a duzey way to open a book, but I felt it was a lackluster story. Sorry ( )

This is a good story. I thought some aspects of the story were left hanging, but its still very satisfying. ( )

I'm confused--is this really a book about an African American artist seen through the eyes of a white boy who throws a brick at him only to be THANKED for "saving" him? a white boy who claims not to have noticed the man's skin color at all?

I read a few chapters and skimmed a few more, but I was not convinced this book was going to do anything but center and inflate the importance of a fictional white boy in a real artist's life.
