A Tale of Two Lizbeths

This is an  idea in its infancy, but it seemed almost fateful that I found this article while scanning through Jezebel the other day. So, because I had book club last night (in which we watched “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” and discussed it), I have no long entry or review to post up here today. Sorry, I was up until 1am chatting and I have to work my final day of New Job and go to a wedding. Life is busy!!

But I do have some fascinating link-spamming comparing the two female-centric literary (and now film) phenomenons. I haven’t finished reading or watched the film version of “Eat, Pray, Love” yet, but that is the next entry on our long and distinguished list of book to movie adaptation reads, so this is to prepare you for a much longer post later this month, in which I will wax effusive about the two literary Lizbeth’s, their popularity, and what makes women so fascinated when media presents and portrays other women. Or strong women. Or other strong women. You know.
