I also saw the movie adaptation of this book. It highlighted how great this book is and how the best parts simply cannot translate to the movies. Like I stated earlier, this book allows us into the characters' thoughts and feelings. The movie struggles to give the audience the same perspective. Also the movie cannot fit all of the action well into two hours.
Check out my book trailer below for more. The book is available in the library. It is also a part of the Battle of the Books 2017.
