I saw the film and hoped the book was just as good and luckily it was, both the book and the film are amazing. and really gripping. If youve seen the film i encourage you to read it too as you will have missed out on a few things taken form the film!
This is just a quick review saying that i throughly enjoyed reading this book but i felt that the writing could of been handled in a more adult way but then again it would be a good book for teenagers ranging from 14 to 20 but thats just my opinion. I also felt that it took a bit long to get going. What i did like was the fact that it was fairly easy to follow and you could easily read it in distracting areas. I not saying this book is bad but i just feel that it lacks the quality of the film. All i can say is that its an okay book and a nice refreshing read.
P.S. WARNING! this book contains a lot of vile words that i feel are inappropriate for kids around 10 to 13. So just be cautioned when buying this book.
i am half way through the book now and it is excellent. the 'blackouts' at the beggining are somewhat explained, and some great twists have been thrown in already. cant wait till the end! the only point i should make is that it swears a bit too much and there are sexual referances in there. but, i still think its outstanding.
