Hi everybody, I just joined this community. I've started reading  the Chronicles of Lymond and I'm so passionate about these books that I feel the need to share my obsession with other people :) - I read The Game of Kings and Queen's Play and I'm now onto the third book.   The books are not easy to read (and English is not my mother-tongue! I'm Italian) but are truly fascinating.  At the moment I seem to spend a lot of time thinking about who could play the part of Lymond if a film was ever made. Any idea?

I kind of like the way JJ Feild looks, but I don't know if he could act the part of Lymond. It would be an enormous demand. I don't quite know if anyone could do it right to satisfy me.

And my favorite Lymondish pic of him:

But really - I don't WANT them to ever attempt a movie or even a miniseries, because I'm sure they'd get things WRONG and it would irritate me. Plus, strangely enough, I LIKE having the books be somewhat secret, not popular. In the Lord of the Rings books, I liked Legolas best, but then the movie came out and EVERYBODY had a crush on Legolas because he was Orlando Bloom... and I was annoyed because I didn't want to SHARE him. I liked him BEFORE he was Orlando Bloom. Hmph! (Actually I liked Frodo best, but I liked Legolas best of the non-Frodo characters).

But sometimes I daydream about a Lymond opera cycle, and I pick out singers for the roles... :D

Parlo un poco di Italiano, ma non posso leggere i libri italiani! Ho letto un libro (Pinocchio, per i bambini), ed era difficile per me! :P

I didn't know JJ Field before seeing him here but he could be a good Lymond I think (well, he looks hot in any case so thanks for sharing!)- I understand your reservations about a screen version of the series, they are almost always unsatisfactory, although I must say I liked "The Lord of the Rings" and the latest BBC Version of "Pride and Prejudice" was really good.
Congratulations on your Italian, your sentence is perfect! Pinocchio may be for children (in the same way that Huck Finn is for children) but it's not an easy book at all, if you can read it you are pretty good, brava! :)
