    1. Yes and no. I mean, the general plot is pretty similar, but there are a lot of different scenes that are WAY cooler. And honestly, the movie made things seem way more hunky-dory than things actually were. So the book was really darker. And the ending is also a bit different (the book ending is way better, of course!)

    1. I have a feeling he’s one of those authors that just writes good stories. I bet I’d love every book he’s written.
