BT Tower and thoughts on the Gone Girl film

BT Tower Canary Wharf and The Shard view

Recently I had the most amazing experience, I went to the top of the BT Tower and witnessed the revolving restaurant as I sat jaw dropped and watched beautiful London in it’s night time glory extend beneath me.

Such was my excitement at such an unusual sight I took way way too many photos, some of the same shot. I clicked away like a madwoman much to the amusement of the other journalists who are most likely used to seeing this view or just being cooler than me.

I walked all the way around and looked out of every window peering far into the distance and spotting some of my favourite landmarks like the London Eye, The Shard Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf.

I ate up the top too, a delicious buffet meal served with wine and dessert to finish. I had the most amazing experience and when I left the building I was given a certificate stating that I, Marianne Weekes, had been to the top of the BT Tower.

Why had I been invited along? Well, it was to watch the film Gone Girl. I had read the book a while back and was gripped to it reading page after page but I had to agree with fellow bookworms that I found the ending disappointing, it left me a bit meh. I had heard very good things about the film and so I wanted to see with my own eyes how they had covered the ending.

I loved it! It was an excellent portrayal that was very close to the book throughout touching on the main characters and the main events, it was fun seeing the story acted and the ending, well I think they tackled it very well, it came over better in the film than it did in the book.

Did you know that you can now get lots of films on your TV via BT TV? You could watch Gone Girl too from the comfort of your sofa.
