I never thought I would think this, let alone say it out loud.
But the movie is better than the book.
There. I was wrong. I never thought it possible. But it obviously is.
And how I know this (except for seeing the movie?) – I actually want to read the next book. 🙂 Even though I still remember the feeling the first book left.
Now, why I feel the movie is better?
First off, I found the actors, Shailene Woodley and Theo James, to have done a wonderful job of bringing Tris and Four to life. I missed more characterization in the book but I didn’t miss it in the movie. Then, it actually seemed there was more explained in the movie than in the book. And the actors certainly did their part in bringing the story to life.
One more thing that I found incredible was the amount of the story that the script held on to. There were minimum changes to the story line which is not something I am used to when books are brought to life in a movie.
I am still surprised at what happened today but there it is – the movie is just much better for me than the book was. 🙂
The only thing that I found disrupting at some points was the choice of music. As I usually do not detect that, I just go with the flow so when I noticed the different songs, I thought it was interesting that I was paying attention to music.
Now, the only thing I want to know is – when will the next movie be out?!

Okay time for me to get to the library!
or maybe the theatre first (that movie is playing now) and THEN the library!
Hmm, I’m not sure if it’s smart to see the movie first, you might not want to finish the book afterwards. 😉
