Welcome to Book Versus Movie!
Did you bring your thinking caps?!
How this works is easy; just check out the post, then leave me your opinion.
Have you seen this movie?
Read the book?
Did one, but not the other?
Well leave me your opinions!
I know we all have strong feelings when it comes to this kind of thing, so I love hearing other peoples opinions! I know I sometimes like movies over the books and vice versa, so I like seeing what others who share my interest think!
This Weeks Book & Movie Is:
The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks

I was torn on this one. While I LOVED the book something fierce, I just DON’T KNOW if Zac Efron was the right choice to play Logan. Not that he sucked, or ruined the part, it’s just.. – I just don’t know.
With that said though, I had no other qualms with this movie. Naturally, some things were different, left out, changed around, yadda yadda what have you, but collectively, I can’t deny this movie made me feel everything I felt when I read the book, which is saying something!
I will say this, I have seen every movie Nicholas Sparks has released, as well as read the book & I haven’t been disappointed in ANY of them!
Jamie was played by Mandy Moore. I have a thing where MOST OF THE TIME, I think choosing a famous singer is a BAD choice. That is just my opinion. However, I think Mandy Moore did excellent in this. The movie, to me, was just as strong as the book. Pretty much all of his stuff is!
While I LOVE me some Channing Tatum – this movie got to me in parts. I have heard mixed reviews on this one when it comes to the book and the movie.
I’d love to hear some other opinions on this weeks Book Versus Movie!
Feel free to leave them in the comments, I respond to each one!
