...What can I say.... I can NEVER hate on the remake of my favorite book, only APPRECIATE the hard work (it is NOT easy) portraying such a great storyline....
Aside from changing little things that didn't matter like hair, EXACT quotes, and certain scenarios...it was perfect. Because first and foremost, i loved the book because it was one of the most romantic storylines I've ever read. What made the movie for me was.. omg...Ian...him and Wanda's love, it honestly made him my favorite character in the book AND movie - just as I imagined him, believe it or not. And they did a perfect job of making sure the obvious love between Wanda and Ian didn't overshaddow the fact that Melanie and Jared were perfect together; it's not like Ian was in love with Melanie, just the soul inside her! So yeah if anything, the main characters were so good, which is of course important - especially Saoirse Ronan (Melanie/Wanda) did such a good job. So if they didn't have to cut out the "small" details that made the book such a romantic, amazing read, well, that's how you know it WOULD have been better than honestly 3/4 of these unoriginal plots I've seen in movies.
