I have seen so many ads about the movie the Host coming out today. It looks very interesting. I personally like to read the book before I watch the movie. I find that the book contains more details and insights that are not always possible to communicated to viewers in scenes. At times, the movie has adapted or modified in such a way that it lost major parts from the book. This is why it really helps me to read the book first.
Right now, I am reading The Host. Slowly but surely. The movie will be released today. But I’ve decided that I am going to read the book first first and then watch the movie. I admit that it will be take me awhile to get there. Usually a very fast reader, I am spending my time between schoolwork, my own writing, my work, my volunteer activities and my personal life. So don’t expect me to read this book anytime soon. lol…
I admit that it has been a struggle to read The Host. It think it was simply the style. It is totally different from her other books. For a minute, it made me wonder about authors being stuck in a particular genre due to some successful best sellers. Just like in music, you expected a certain artist to perform certain types of songs only. In entertainment, you expect certain roles to accept only certain roles.
So far, I like it. I will post my opinion without spoiling it for others who have not seen it. Any of you read it already? Anyone wanna share? and if you have seen the movie, let me know what you think withiut giving it all away though. lol… Please note, just because I have not read the book does not mean I will refuse offers to go the movies. I can make time 😉
