Read my book review here
No movie spoilers
Okay, I went in with low expectations honestly. I loved the book, but I also loved the first Twilight and Vampire Academy. Wasn't so impressed with those movies. (Will say though I liked the rest in the Twilight series movies, but anyways.)
But I was blown away. It stayed true to the book in all of the ways that counted in my opinion. But then again, its been a while since I read.
But I thought that the casting was amazing. Woodley rocked it. She was emotional, she really sold the character to me, and that is how she will remain in my head.
I have seen Woodley in Divergent and Secret Life, but I hadn't seen Elgort in anything. But he was the perfect Gus. He was snarky at right times, emotional, and totally romantic.
They had such believable chemistry, made my heart beat and there were a few times where I did the lovesick sigh.
Also, the humor. It is right up my alley. I sat beside another adult and I almost asked her for her phone number because I think we could have been great friends, but alas, my anxiety wouldn't allow that. Some of the jokes went over the majority of the audiences' heads in Apex, but it felt like it was written for me.
And oh the emotions. I am not a crier. I would be in real life except if I were emotional about something then I don't think that I would be functional because of the pain... But anyways, it takes quite a bit for a movie or book to make me cry but it happens more often than crying over something real. But it had me tearing up a bit, and it was so powerful.
I would love to see it again, and I think it was a great book to screen adaptation, and earns my approval.
So, readers, have you seen it? Are you going to? What did you think or why are you not seeing?
