I just hope it's the whole book. Sometimes in some sites....they have only half the book, and it creates a problem. Anyway, it looks like the whole book is there....

message 13: by Jessica (new)

Jessica (fresqueeze) Read it a while back this year and completely fell in love with it! I didn't see the movie til after I completed the book and I have to say I was disappointed. Usually I can appreciate the two works as a separate but not in this case. I thought the movie was awful and murdered the bonds between the characters in the book. But hey, to each their own. Happy readings!

Ritika Gupta (thesentimentalreader) | 8 comments Done with the book! Will try for the other one now. Again your BOTM made me read something I otherwise wouldnt.

Great! Did you like the book?


message 19: by Ritika (new)

Ritika Gupta (thesentimentalreader) | 8 comments I liked the movie more. It was a decent read, but the writing style was strictly ok. But its like if you have seen the movie, you can give this book a skip. I am starting The Great Gatsby, hopefully this one should be better than the movie.

Oh....ok. I guess it'll be different for everyone since in an earlier post, Jessica commented that she liked the book better. But I just hope the book isn't too bad....I loved the movie and would like it if the book were as good too.

Heard a lot about Great Gatsby! You'll sure love it:)

Kimbie | 7 comments I finished yesterday. It was an easy read. I liked the honest way the main character was written. I found myself looking at clouds with silver linings ,and wondering if I would have endured as well as the people in this book.

message 34: by Gayathri (new)

Gayathri (elgeewrites) | 35 comments I didn't like the book much either.. And I haven't not watched yet, but of course Cooper would have made it a lot easier to watch:-D

And I was wondering if it was due to reading it too closer to The perks of being wallflower, as they are from similar premises of psychologically ill persons.

Chelle  | 136 comments This book really was different from other books I have read and I wasn't expecting that. Absolutely thought the book was better than the movie, in my opinion.
