Book vs. Movie: A Monster Calls

A heart-wrenching and moving audiobook and film, A Monster Calls is a unique story that digs deep into the themes of death and the grieving process. The movie is perfectly cast and is only slightly different from the original story, making it one of the best book to movie adaptations that I have seen in a while. Continue reading

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an interesting book vs. movie to compare. It is actually an original and entertaining screenplay that spins off of a Hogwarts text book of the same name from the Harry Potter series that describes and accounts for all of the known magical beasts in the wizarding world. In this movie, viewers are introduced to the quirky Newt Scamander and quite a few of the incredible beasts that Rowling has imagined. The acting is impeccable and this is the storytelling that can only come from an author like J.K. Rowling. Continue reading

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins is one thriller book that needs to be on your to-be-read list. The characters are so well developed and the story is one that will keep you guessing right up until the end. An adaptation of any book is sure to be different from the original, however this movie did a wonderful job of keeping most of the story intact. Continue reading

As a fan of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,  Ransom Riggs, I was thrilled to see it become a movie. The fantastic setting and peculiarities of the children were captured so well and looked perfect on the screen. However, there are a few aspects of the book that weren’t as exciting as the book, which was a bit disappointing. I would recommend reading the book after watching the movie. Continue reading
