Book vs Movie: Beastly by Alex Flinn
This Weeks Book & Movie Is:
Let me start by saying that as a kid, I LOVED Beauty and the Beast. I thought it was the most epic story of everlasting love. Simply because she fell in love with him BEFORE she knew what he really looked like. If you can love a person at their worst, you can love them through anything. I mean, would DOESN’T want a love like that? So naturally, when I came across this book – it was an easy decision – I had to have it. Like a ton of other people, I loved it. It portrayed everything it should have.
Then the movie comes along. While I like the movie, I can honestly say that I don’t know if it was cast right. (Then again, what movie actually has the PERFECT cast when it’s based off a book!?) I do think that Alex Pettyfer made a great Kyle. I am just not sure about Vanessa Hudgens playing Lindy. The biggest shocker for me in this movie? Mary-Kate Olsen as Kendra. I think she did an amazing job.
The feel of the book was still there for me with the movie (: I felt the exact same thing I felt when I read the book; so kudos on that part!
I’d love to hear some other opinions on this weeks Book Versus Movie!
