  1. Loved the book. It will be interesting to see how it turns out as a movie.
    Sometimes though, movies aren't as true as the novels are and a lot of it gets lost.
    I'll definitely be watching this one!

     
  2. Juvin Ang Says,

    The movie did follow the book closely with slight differences, but all in all it is a film worth checking out just to marvel at the great acting job by all. And I am going to recommend reading the beautiful book The Death and Life of
    Charlie St. Cloud
    by Ben Sherwood. You will need a hankie for both.
