The perks of books being made into movies!

By Lucy Harbron - 13:39


I'm one of the decreasing amount of teenagers that read, there is never a time when i don't have a book on the go! I honestly can't tell you what my favourite book is as there are so so so many good ones, like so many! (lets just say this, my shelf is close to collapsing under the pressure!)

          One of my top books is "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky. For those of you that don't know what it's about; the book tells the story of, and is narrated by, a teenage boy called Charlie through a series of letters. Charlie and his family have not had an easy past, and all charlie wants when he starts high school is to get through it.
                   But let me get one this straight now, THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE "STORY OF A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT" BOOK!
                   The story follows charlie through almost everything;girls, drugs, music, new friends, first dates, even the rocky horror picture show.

                    It is one of those books where you finish it and just kind of sit there think "wow." and you genuinely feel effected by it! The only way i can think to describe it is like being stabbed in the heart by a massive candy cane, it hurts so much and you are so shocked, but it's just SO DANG GOOD!

But then, I'll be honest with you here, when i heard it was being turned into a film i was extremely dubious about it, almost annoyed! You see, for me perks of being a wallflower is one of those books that you never want it to be ruined, so you dint want others to know about, in case they turn around like "it's rubbish" So when i heard about the film i was so worried that they would get it wrong, try and turn it into something it isn't, all happy and smiley.
                  Then along came to trailer...BOOM bright yellow screen with the title on. That was the moment i vowed i wouldn't see it, as much as i wanted. I would stick by the book, i would not give into the media!

Yeah then i went to see it on the first weekend it was out (great job keeping your promises Lucy!)
           I don't cry at films, i can sit there through multiply deaths with a poker face, i didn't even cry at Marley and me! But then oh my gosh this film, I just wept,all the way through; constant stream of tears, mascara down my face, puffy eyes! Then knowing the ending, just cried even more!
           I wasn't disappointed in the slightest, they had got everything perfect! the music, the outfits, the scenery, the actors, the words, everything! Both me and my best friend had read, and love, the book, and seconds into the scene we could tell which part it was simply from the setting and the music!


honestly, just so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so good!

If you like indie/soft rock/rock and roll go see it!
If you like complex/deep plot lines go see it!
If you like Emma Watson go see it!
If you simply like good films defiantly go see it!

5 STARS! i most defiantly recommend you either see the film or read the book, be adventurous, DO BOTH!

that's all for now!
have a lovely week!
