Sixth Sense

Never a Book

Unfortunately, The Sixth Sense was never, as far as I know, a novel. Nevertheless I have include it here for lack of a ‘novel’ example of this trick of the writer’s art. The trick enabled me (a profound sceptic of matters supernatural) to suspend disbelief sufficiently to enjoy it thoroughly.

The writing of the screenplay was by M Night Shayamalan, who also directed the production starring Bruce Willis. If you think of a ‘novel example, then let me know.

Best Original Screenplay Oscar

The film was nominated for Best Film at the Academy Awards, and is a good example of where a book of the film would sell well. It did win several Oscars – including one for Best Original Screenplay.
