I listened to the audio Audible format this book narrated by Tavia Gilbert who did an amazing performance. Most people know this story, but maybe the movie adaptation which is a bit gentler and changed up a bit from the original print version. Great story, though.

I absolutely adore this book. Very interesting as a long time fan of the movie to see extra snippets and details that weren't in the movie. The rest of the series starts to get really weird though...

I used to watch the film of this a lot when I was a child so it was a little strange to read it for the first time as an adult. I enjoyed the story and the bits that were not in the film. Overall, a good read.

Really enjoyed reading this book. I have only seen the movie prior to this and enjoyed the additional characters and lanes in this book. If you enjoy the movie I strongly recommend the book.

I always read these books as an escapism from life when I was a child. It is nice to know its there if I ever need to go off again.
