Recommended for: Those Who Haven't Seen the Movie
Read from June 29 to July 11, 2012

I think that while it was a good book, I don't think that it was all that different from the movie. Hats off to those who made the movie, by the way, because it followed so closely. A few things are changed, but overall it's the exact same experience, even word for word in some instances.

It was an enjoyable read and was as enjoyable as the movie. Unless you really want to know the minute changes that were made from the adaptation to a movie, this might be one to pass.

Details are pretty much the same, except for aome more information in certain areas and a few minor details were changed. Honestly the movie was probably better at making a more illustrative experience than the book."
