dwndrgn: You must read Drawing of the Dark as a Powers fan
I haven't read any of Powers' novels yet, but I do have The Anubis Gates, and The Stress Of Her Regard in my TBR pile. Which would you recommend I start with?
Concerning the upcoming movie, I've read that neither Orlando Bloom nor Keira Knightley were interested, so I guess that leaves Will Turner ... where the third movie left him.
I dont care either way, the only thing i hope is seeing On Stranger Tides get reprinted,better known by fantasy fans who havent read it. The last two film in the series ruined the series for me anyway.
It has been by Harper and was released just a couple weeks ago. On the back of that trade paperback is the quote "The novel that inspired the motion picture - Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides." It sounds more to my liking than The Anubis Gates - we'll see.
So in terms of what inspired what this appears to be the order:
Pirates of the Caribbean (the ride) --- On Stranger Tides (the novel) --- Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (the film)
The swashbuckler entertainment dialectic, if you will.
On Stranger Tides is much more fun,enjoyable than Anubis Gates that i think is the only overrated work by Powers.
Conn, you're just going to have to be in continued disagreement with many other Powers fans, myself included, who really liked Anubis. But I'll probably have to give Stranger Tides a re-read when I find time. Just out of curiosity, how did you like Declare?
