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!!
