Inglourious Basterds – A Novelization

For those of you who have watched the movie Inglourious Basterds, you have to agree that it is a fantastic one. It is exciting right from the beginning, sinister yet funny, and has an ensemble cast chock full of over-the-top protagonists and antagonists. It is also made up of multiple chapters which are like films on their own, and thus a perfect recipe for a novelization. A novelization is the opposite of “Based on the book by…” i.e., it is when a film is made into a book, replacing the moments and emotions with words. That is exactly what I am doing, or, at least, trying to do. I am converting my favorite movie into a book!

So far, one chapter is over. If you have watched the movie, it the one where SS Colonel Hans Landa visits “French cow country,” hunting for hiding Jews. I hope Quentin Tarantino, the director, won’t mind my feeble attempt to breach Copyright laws 🙂 But, if ever, he should feel pleased! If the book winds up well, I might publish it here, or make a real book out of it 🙂
