Movie rec: Gravity

One of the questions I get asked most often about The Way We Fall is why I decided to write it in journal format. My answer is that I was trying to get across the tension of the situation in an immediate way, hoping that readers would feel they were there with Kaelyn day by day as her world fell apart.

My husband and I went to see Gravity today, and afterward I thought of that. Because Gravity manages to do in film format what I was attempting to in my book: the power of the movie is that it immerses you in the experience so well you can feel what it might be like to be adrift in space yourself. (At least, I found it worked very well — I highly suggest seeing it in IMAX 3D if you can.) I left the theater feeling rather breathless.

So if you like stories that have that effect, go check it out! And I’d be interested to hear any other books, movies, etc. you’ve come across that gave you that immersive experience.
