I was still considering it, a co-worker mentioned that it is NOTHING like the book but it has been a while since she had read the book.
, it started out so great! I enjoyed the book so much, despite the typical distructive, toxic friendship and the love triangle... then 40 pages from the end the whole thing fell a part for me... BLAH-blah predictible, lunch bag let down.

So reading this book next! I need something that's not garbage to read.
, seems to be another YA trilogy that Kelley Armstrong
is working on with tie-ins to her previous "Darkest Powers" trilogy... and is equally thrilling! and better written, with darkest powers it seemed as though she was figuring out what sort of style would work for the audience she was seeking and with this book she has taken off. I am bitting my nails waiting for the next book!!

Also, listened to [book:Columbine|5..."
Ooh, these seem intriguing! Certianly added to my TBR.
I am glad you agreed, Callista, I must say that I noticed with the movie that he is actually somewhat good looking...
Welcome Susan, I'm glad you jumped right in and I hope you enjoy your time here.
lol, Callista, you did... but at least I did not PAY to see Red Riding Hood...
Water for Elephants left me really impressed. I started crying from the opening credits because they did somethin impressive they started the movie from where the book ended. An effective cinematic tool. And although little things were omitted, moved around ect. the key tenants and themes that were important in the book was repeated in the movie.
Although I agree with critics, Reece Witherspoon should never have been casted as Marlena - she is probably the only woman right now in Hollywood who is petite enough for that character.
to Rob Pattison! I thought he would never break out of his Twilight shadow and he clearly has with this roll!
I give this movie a 4/5 for book to movie effectiveness.
The rest of the series is really good, and I got really attached to the three children. Be prepared for some repetition in themes and nuances, but it is geared more to young children and repetition is key for younger children when reading such a long series.
