I feel like I have to say this every time I’ve read a book that has a movie based on it. I’m gonna be upfront about it – yes I’ve seen the movie.
But actually, I did read a bit of this book before the movie. And what I mean by that is, one time I was at my sister’s house and I saw the book sitting and I read a few pages in bed, didn’t think much of it and forgot about it.
Then a few years later I saw the movie, cried, obviously.
Now today I have finished reading the book.
I have to say I do think it’s redundant about reading a book when you’ve seen the movie. Which everyone says. But I only mean it if the movie and the book are basically identical. And that’s the case here.
Too bad you don’t really know it until you’ve actually read the whole thing lol.
Suppose I could have asked or looked to see if anyone had asked but I guess I wanted to find out for myself.
I enjoyed the book a lot, it brought back flashes of the movie which I liked. I couldn’t imagine Will as anyone but Sam Claflin he’s gorgeous.
But yeah, it was a good book though I would skip it if you’ve seen the movie. I am interested in maybe reading the sequels. I think it is a great standalone book but there are a couple sequels. I’m not too fussed on reading them but it would be interesting to see what Louisa gets up to next.
Did I cry at the book?
I was trying very hard not to lol I was in a cafe at lunchtime and didn’t really think it was the best time to start crying. But it definitely still got me emotional.
Overall a cute read, yet heartbreaking at the same time. Don’t know what my next book will be but I’m sure I’ll find it in no time. 🙂
