Having seen the movie first I was hoping the story would be more in depth, maybe a little different, and it was but only in some minor ways. Overall, for me the book was just a narrative of the movie. I did love the movie however and am not saying this is a bad book in any way. Its a great story complete with twists and turns, action, love, and fighting. Just a warning for those looking into this because of the movie, it is the same. For those who haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend this book...and the movie!
It wasn't a bad book, but it seemed lengthy to me and at times difficult to get through. Its written much like its movie counterpart yet has several large discrepancies, including the ending. If you liked the movie the book could be worth a read for a similar yet different story.
An elderly woman looks to come clean about her life, specifically her childhood. Filled with suspense and sadness, the story tells of happy and uncertain memories.
I absolutely loved this book. I loved the story and I loved the narration. I've given it to 3 people since reading it. Any avid reader who likes a good plot twist will love this mystery. I could not recommend this book any more, its a must read!
A great action story of oppression and resistance. HOWEVER! If you have seen the movie it is basically the SAME. If you were looking for a more in depth and detailed story compared to the movie you really wont get it from this. If you haven't seen the movie then this book could be an exciting adventure.
An unimaginable tale of survival and perseverance. A young boy trapped at sea with a tiger as his only companion. A story of courage, hope, loss and loneliness. I very much enjoyed this story overall. A times it did seem to be lots of lists, lists of experiences, or weather, of sights. Mostly however I was just taken with the unique plot.
This book was like nothing I had ever read. The narration was wonderful and the duel narrators for the two main characters made the story much easier to follow along. A story full of emotion both happy and sad, and much waiting.
I read the book before I saw the movie and I am happy for that fact. The movie did not spoil much however as the book and movie end WAY differently. If you loved the movie you will love the book even more, take the time to listen.
