Brideshead revisited

It's been a long time since the last book club meeting...three months in fact...not because we fell out over fondue or which water crest crackers to nibble, but because 2 out of the 3 members were out of Sydney for an extended period of time...does it still count as a "club" if there are only 3 members?

We had the "novel" notion that we each pick a book that has been adapted for the screen - thanks to Jam we did "Fight Club". All agreed that the book and the film are both awesome...of course we say that in more eloquent, high flatulent book-speak - with the words such as "juxaposition", "context", "consumerism", "metaphor", "foreshadowing", "sexy syntax" thrown about the living room...this was then followed by swoons over the foxy Mr Pitt

So it's my turn - i picked "The Brideshead Revisited"

Which has had numerous television and film adaptions - needless to say i haven't seen any of them, nor have i read the book - the meeting is fast approaching, i should hop to it, if these delicious images are anything to go by then i think it's going to be a cracker
