Book is better — 5 years ago
That movie was … well…. not worth the same title.
I mean, while reading the book there were certain sexually explicit parts with the children that you knew they wouldn’t be able to do on screen. But that didn’t mean removing main characters!
For the most part they tried to keep it to the book which was nice I enjoyed that. But then they removed the whole centre of the book and 2 main characters, and Tom’s roll, and Butch Bowers.
So much was removed.
The ending, giving them credit they tried, had nothing to do with pregnant and eggs and killing. And why was Eddie’s hand not broken. Not only that but what happened with Eddie left you having no idea what happened. In comparison to the book it gets 1 star from me, but had I not read the book it’d get 2 stars. Too bad I read the book first eh? :p
