Hello everyone! It may be the last day of the month, but I’m still just in time to get this month’s Book Vs Movie post in. This month I’m talking about The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants and its film adaptation.
I don’t know how old I was when I read this one, I think maybe 12 or 13? Definitely pre-teen/young teenager anyway. It’s a cute story, not my usual kind of thing but I remember really enjoying it when I did read it, I think because although there was quite a bit of romance in it, what I really remember was the friendship between the four girls and that was always more important than whatever boyfriends/love interests they had which was great.
Again, I enjoyed the movie. It’s pretty faithful to the book, to be honest, I saw the film so long after I read the book that I probably wouldn’t have picked up any inconsistencies anyway! I think they did a really good job on the casting, all of the actresses were really good in their roles and it’s a nice, sweet, comforting film, perfect for a Friday evening with a tub of ice cream!
Movie or Book Judgement:
I liked them both, but I actually think I’d go with the movie here as I’d probably prefer to come back to the story that way rather than reading the book again.
That’s it for this month’s Book Vs Movie, I will be back again next month, talking about Artemis Fowl and the new movie adaptation.
