The book was better
9 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry, but I can't help to be biased.

Our whole class loved the book (We stayed in at recess to finish it.) but the movie was not as good!

The acting wasn't very good either. The movie was unable to capture the power of the book. (My teacher usually cries when reading it.)Instead, it ended up looking a bit corny. I didn't like The Outsiders movie either! (They were both a bit similar.) I guess we are just used to seeing a superb first-rate book-movie, instead of another movie that looks like it was home-made.

I loved the book. Read it.
