Five Bells
Beat winter's last blasts with great fiction in front of a roaring fire. Jan-Philipp Sendker's The Art of Hearing Heartbeats follows a young woman on a quest to Burma to unravel her father's disappearance after the discovery of an old love letter. An assistant DA in suburban Massachusetts finds himself on the defensive when his son is accused of murdering another student in William Landay's Defending Jacob. Homesteaders in the wilderness of 1920s Alaska find a wild girl who they come to love in Eowyn Ivey's twist on a Russian fairy tale, The Snow Child. Fiction review: *By Blood* by Ellen Ullman

You loved the book. Will you love the movie?

Critics and readers lauded Kaui Hart Hemmings's The Descendants upon its release several years ago.

Its screen adaptation stars George Clooney as a father (and descendant of Hawaiian royalty) who finds out about his wife's affair after she dies in a boating accident.

He must find a way to bridge the distance back to his two daughters and decide whether or not he should sell the land that is his family's island legacy.

The film's DVD / Blu-ray release March 13 gives fans of the book a golden opportunity to study the transition of The Descendants from beloved novel to Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning movie.

Not sure where to start in comparing apples and oranges? Try this handy book-to-film discussion guide to kickstart the conversation.
