After three years, finally finished reading this book. Well, actually, I got a copy of this book (recommended by my good friend and fellow-bookworm, Desi) when I was pregnant. Eh since tamad ako magbasa nun, I didn’t got to finish it. When I gave birth, I tried reading it again but took me several months before I was able to finish. It was super effort talaga to finish reading a book when the #FabSkye was a baby.
But now, I read it again just in time for the movie. Which I haven’t seen yet, obviously, because my friends told not to. I’d be disappointed lang daw.
This book is really something. I love the way it was written. I love how the author was able to draw pictures of scenes on my head as I was reading. He was describing each peculiarity in such a way that it’ll make your imagination go wild. And then of course the photos! They are awesome. Sometimes I would find myself looking intently at the photos imagining each peculiarity and wonder if there’s a probability that everything written here was true. The last time I felt this way on a book eh sa Harry Potter pa. So yeah. Thank you Ransom Riggs for building a whole new world of peculiar and loops.
To my fellow bookworms, go and read this one. I’m on the 2nd book now and so far so good. I love the adventure, the teenage love story and peculiarities. A whole new different world. Very much engaging.
But I still haven’t watched the movie yet. Grabe daw ang movie. It’s sooo far from the book. Lahat ng bookworm friends ko na inaantay tong movie na to, galit na galit na lumabas sa sinehan. My bookworm friends, 1 week nagrarant sa chatroom namin. Nyahahahaha! Sila din nagsabi sa akin to not watch anymore. Ma-stress lang daw ako. And sayang ang money.
But I still plan to watch it. Sa HBO nalang siguro. Harhar!
How about you, have you read this book already? How about the movie? Or both? Let me know!
