I found something recently in a bookstore which appalled me for a good few minutes that I just had to stand there gaping at the cover.



Yes, people. The classic book, and amazingly written musical, Les Miserables, has a freaking sequel. I'd understand and care a bit more if it was written by Victor Hugo, or if it stuck to his book at all. But she completely rewrites the last section to make Marius into some kind of shady character that Valjean disapproves of, and Javert is alive, and later arrests Marius, and it's just a whole pile of crap I'd like to forget I ever set eyes on.

In my opinion, books should never have sequels if they're not written by the original authors. Only Louisa May Alcott knew how Jo March would be living to write Little Men, or V.C. Andrews knew that Cathy Dollanganger would end up marrying her brother in Petals on the Wind.

What films, books, TV shows, anything, do you think should never have had a sequel?

sleeping
My sleep pattern is crazy messed up right now. I've been sitting up working on a paper which isn't due in for a while, just because I napped after classes today, and now I'll be up all night. Not settled back in at all right now. I don't even know what I'm talking about, just writing here beats flicking through YouTube and Megavideo links to find something to watch. Sex and the City reruns can only entertain a person for so long. Any recommendations about what to watch? Or ways to get into a sleep pattern so I don't randomly pass out one day? Thanks.
