Paper Towns – John Green

The latest book on my “I have read” list is: Paper Towns by John Green. I have read “the fault in our stars” last year while it was a hype all around the world and I enjoyed the book. With that book it was most certain that the ending wouldn’t be “happy”, but the storyline is cute and very inspiring. Well let me continue about the book at hand which is “Paper Towns” this summers new hype. The storyline of this book starts off fun with a night with Margot that “Q” (aka Quentin the main character of the book) will never forget. After this night the book gets all mysterious as Margot disappears.

SPOILERS Do not continue reading if you do not want to know things that happen in the book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am warning you !!!!!!!

Do you really want to do this….

Yeah sure go ahead but I warned you there would be spoilers…

What really made me frustrated during basically the entire book is that no one other than Q seemed to (excuse my language) give a shit about the girl who disappeared, this kids in high school prefered planning their outfits for PROM rather than FINDING the girl that DISAPPEARED (ran away) not even her parents went to find her or even tried. Okay okay I get she ran away various time and after you cry wolf all the time people start not believing you but even if she is of legal age and therefore in the eyes of the law a adult that choose to run away, you would think any parent would still feel obligated to find their child. These were my initial frustrations which occurred throughout the entire book, the final frustrating moment came at the end when Q and his friends find Margot in someplace near New York and she ends up not leaving with Q even though she clearly likes him now. This ending got me thinking that Mr. Green does not enjoy writing happy ends.

Overall it was a good book, I still prefer “The Fault in our Stars” but that is my personal opinion of course. I have yet to watch the movie but will post my reactions on that movie once I watch it.

My overall rating for this book is: 3 Stars

 As always thank you for reading and have a wonderful day!

Dark Places BOOK vs MOVIE – Gillian Flynn

 Gillian Flynn’s second crime thriller doesn’t disappoint (even though I didn’t read the first one “Sharp Objects”), this action pact crime thriller keeps you guessing until the very end abou what happened on that day that Libby’s family was brutally murdered and her older accused of these murders. I would prefer not spoil any single part of this amazing roller coaster of a book that is “Dark Places”. I can say it’s a book that once you start reading you won’t stop until you’ve finished… Literally not matter what time of the day it is, I for example started reading this book one day late afternoon and finished it at 5 am. On the next day after having finished the book, I was tempted to watch the movie, but like the movie review this movie disappointed big time. The reason for this disappointment might be the fairly large casting problem, Libby’s mother is too beautiful in the movie and in the book she is described to be a person you wouldn’t want to go up and hug. Ultimately what I hated about the movie was that neither Libby nor her brother Ben’s hair were red!! In the book Libby has yes painted her hair blond but it’s a sloppy painting where her red roots are showing already. In the movie her hair is perfectly blond. Ben’s hair problem is even bigger, when she goes to see him in prison his hair is dark brown but not red.

I’m sorry to burden you with my movie casting problems and “look” problems. It’s safe to say movies are NEVER as good as the books.

After reading “Dark Places” I am certain that I will read other Gillian Flynn books and enjoy them very much if she continues writing these thrillers that suck you in, I will continue reading them. The next ones I will read from her are “Gone Girl” and “Sharp Objects”. I would love to know if others who read the book and watched the movie felt the same on the issues I encountered which I mentioned above, leave opinion down below in the comment section.
My overall rating on the book: 4 stars

Thank you for reading and have a great day.
The

Not so Perfect Trailer

John Carter, have you ever seen that movie? Well if not than take my advice it’s worth watching. If you’re like me then by now you’re on YouTube searching for the trailer. If you’re already done watching than maybe you’ll understand me. The trailer is CRAP! Yes you read the right. CRAP! It show nothing of the beautiful images and fights. And to tell you the truth it tells you absolutely nothing about the movie. After watching I asked my sister what the movie was about. Well it wasn’t a “normal” trailer. There are movies that the trailer is much better than the actual movie, but there are cases like “John Carter” in which the movie is more than you expected from watching just the horrible trailer.
I wasn’t going to watch this movie, but I couldn’t convince my family NOT to watch it. So I had no other choice, and now I can’t wait to see the sequel.

Watch the movie and then tell me what you think…
Have you seen the trailer?! Did you “like” it just like me?

Peace out

Do you remember the movie/ great book

A movie you probably remember…

Well yes it was a movie, not really a good one. But I can guarantee you that the book was breath taking..

The Last Song, yes that movie with Miley Cyrus and that hot dude. Ok here it goes, this is the summary that’s on the back of the book, afterwards I’ll tell you what I thought of it.

 

Seventeen-year-old Veronica “Roonie” Miler’s life was turned upside down when her parents divorced an her father moved from New York to Wilmington, North Carolina. Since then she has remained angry and alienated from her parents, until her mother decides she should spend the summer with her father.

Roonie’s father, a former concert pianist and teacher, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church.

What unfolds is an unforgettable story about love – first love and the love between parents and children – that demonstrates that many ways that relationships can break our hearts . . . and heal them.

Did you like it? Would you read it? Right now just reading the summary? Well I did and I didn’t even want to see the movie they made, but I did watch it later on.(not right after I read the book.)

Well the story is like always very well written and very detailed, that’s one of the reasons movies piss me off so much because they kind of destroy the story the author originally wrote. Continuing, it’s an easy book to read and every passionate and, after you start you will not put down the book until you finish reading it.

In this book it is not different there is a life lesson we learn reading it, which is “never reject you parents without hearing the entire story, listen , don’t be mad all the time. “ That’s at least what I got out of the book. Reading it you notice this Roonie girl is pretty miserable and lonely.

There are some really great parts of the book that were left out in the movie, so for that reason and many other you should read it totally recommended.

Peace out
