They (insert here: Evil scheming movie makers) have changed the story. I know right? Just no.
Always Stick to the Book
The ending is completely different… Okay so I wasn’t in love with the original ending and yes I spent hours crying and days in hibernation after finishing the book. But it was real. The author said so. So I say so. The end.
Before Allegiant, I thought that Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper book-to-movie was the worst interpretation ever. My Sister’s Keeper was heart-wrenching, shocking, amazing…. The movie was just sweet. Sweet. That was all they could do when they had amazing to work with?
Some directors choose to focus on certain aspects, more than the book did. More violence, more action, more romance. Think The Hunger Games or The Maze Runner. I get that. They want to increase the audience and getting the story out is better than nothing. But they still stick to the original story.
The book is always better. But sometimes the movie can be good, even brilliant.
Just don’t change the story. EVER
