Incomprehensible.

Tonight one of the networks is going to have an hour special on his life and death. :)

I heard that Robin Williams had died while reading your journal.
I'm shocked the news.
I think it was a great actor, probably overkill but with extraordinary sensitivity.
I discovered it many years ago in the film on Garp and since then has accompanied me many hours in the cinema
I feel much that he has died

Robin Williams

Hugs

PD.- Sorry for my english. Google translate.

Oh, The World According to Garp is a wonderful movie. I need to rewatch it tonight.
guiomar_992: proteccióguiomar_992 on August 12th, 2014 05:11 pm (UTC)
Yes, it is a wonderful movie and is a great novel by John Irving.

I read the novel by John Irving from cover to cover on a 4 hour flight from Chicago to Las Vegas right after it was first published. I was so engrossed I couldn't put it down. It felt as if the flight had only taken 10 minutes when the plane was landing. I loved the movie, too, when it came out.

I still can't believe Robin Williams is gone.

Generally, I do not like the movie adaptations of novels. But in this case, I think the movie is as good as the book.
Robin "was" Garp.

We will have him in our memory.

For some reason I've never read the book. I should try and find a copy of it.
guiomar_992: proteccióguiomar_992 on August 12th, 2014 09:10 pm (UTC)
I do not know your preferences in books, but I highly recommend you read it.
John Irving is special, Robin Williams too.

I wish he could have gotten help for his depression. So tragic that he felt taking his life was the only way out.

Really tragic. I wish he had the help he needed. He was such a great actor and so funny. It makes me very sad that he is gone. Marion

Hi, Marion. The real tragedy is that we usually never know these people are suffering so horribly until it's too late. I so wish Robin could have been helped before he felt so hopeless.
