Review – The Illumination by Kevin Brockmeier 


The Illumination is one of those books which someone is bound to turn into a film one day and completely ruin it. Who could resist the opportunity to combine true to life human stories with some cool CGI? If I had a hundred million quid to hand, I’d make it myself.

I’m not against adaptations, but some books will only ever work on paper, and unless Alejandro González Iñárritu gets his hands on it, The Illumination will remain one of them. 

I guess what I’m trying to say is, read it before Alejandro does.
