Summer books to movies

9 Jul

Last week, I went to see the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars.

I was a little skeptical at first because Gus, portrayed by Ansel Elgort,  was not how I pictured him. As the movie progressed, I was OK because, although I still don;t think of Gus looking like Ansel, he captured his personality. Of course the movie left out important things. I wonder how people who didn’t read the book react to the presence of the swing set in the yard, then its later unexplained absence. All in all, it was a good adaptation.

I am looking forward to the August 22nd release of If I Stay, based on the novel by Gayle Forman, which I loved.

I saw the trailer for it when I went to see TFiOS and I am very hopeful.

Mockingjay, Part 1  doesn’t come out until November, but trailers have appeared. here are the first two:

I can hardly wait!!

    Just saw The Fault in Our Stars on Monday, quite enjoyed. Curious about the other ones you mentioned. Just watched the trailer for The Giver, that one I’ll avoid.. Hmm.
