Ok, so here’s a confession. I purchased this book on October 29, 2014. And….I just read it. What in the hell was I thinking? I kept putting it off. I don’t know why, I just kept putting it off. The original cover maybe? I don’t know. Seriously, I’m really not sure but now that I’ve read it, I could kick my own ass for putting it off for so long.
Holy tear-jerker super-reader! It wasn’t just a few pretty tears, this one was an UGLY cry. I loved Louisa and Will so much. I loved how she didn’t take his shit and I loved how she made him feel. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful – from beginning to end.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS.
Update: I waited forever but I finally rented the movie. I’m ALWAYS leary of the movie of a great book, because in production it is almost always fucked up. Too much is lost in translation and usually the characters don’t live up to my expectations on screen. Anyway….this was one of the best book adaptations I have ever watched. So now I HIGHLY RECOMMEND both the book and the movie.
