Held myself from watching this movie before I read the book, and didn't regret it a bit. I like comparing books and movie adaptation and usually movies fail at recreating the world I've already imagined while reading the book.
In this case, while it didn't quite manage to capture the same feelings that come with the book, it still follows the tone and cadence of the book.
It's strange, really. Considering that they've cut most of the time Charlie spends without his friends and falls apart and the fact that most of the characters are very different from how they're described in the book, it's still somehow the same.
And tunnel scenes gave me chills, just like when I was reading the book.This entry was originally posted at http://sometimes-i-get.dreamwidth.org/63944.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
