I hate when books become movie concepts. It’s probably because each of us, as individuals, imagine each scene in our own way, and the movie never quite meets expectations.
And don’t get me started on the movies that CHANGE from the book (If I’m not mistaken, The Lovely Bones was different from book to movie ever so slightly).
The characters are never as you imagined them, from the way that they look, to the way they sound in your head. They’re usually too pretty, and don’t quite follow the book description close enough.
