I loved this book during the first half. After that, I hated it. I wanted to throw it against the wall. Then, in the last 50 or so pages I fell in love again. The way the book sets up worlds is fantastic. I didn’t love every character or every bit, but it will stick with me. When I read it again, I’ll just skip the parts I can’t stand.

I simply love this movie and when I found out it was based on a book, I just had to read it. And I'm glad I did.
I really enjoyed the book and getting to know these characters even more. There are definitely differences between the book and movie ( but that isn't new, lol). Even though I enjoyed this book, I must admit, I like the movie a bit better.
Why? I don't know how to explain it. I guess I like the relationship or interactions between the characters better in the movie.
I will recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy and for those who have seen the movie as well!

I'm a bit overwhelmed to write a real review. I may need to think for a few days. I don't have the right words to describe this right now.

If I could define my life by a book, this one might be it. First read it at eleven and it's been with me ever since.
