There has been a lot of talk about this movie in the last few months, mostly bad, but some good. It hindered my thoughts of the movie going in to it, and honestly i had a bad taste in my mouth before i even stepped in to the cinema screen. But i wanted to try it out.
Last year me and Sophie hosted the Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children read-along for Halloween. We both absolutely loved the book and was excited to read it ahead of the movie release. The movie stars the likes of Asa Butterfield, Samuel L Jackson and Eva Green. It was released late September 2016 and was a box office smash hit. With the release of the DVD in a few days, i have pulled together some of my thoughts on the movie and books.
There is always the age old question when you find out a book has a movie deal that is
“Is it actually going to do it justice?”
We all know that there are plenty of movie adaptations that have not done the book justice at all (*cough* I Am Number Four) but there are plenty that excel all expectations and make a reader beyond happy when they see their favourite story come to life on the screen. Me Before You was definitely one of those for me.
