See the movie, then read the book.
24 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Unfortunately I had already read the book. I had preconceived ideas about Charles Bucktin. However, I was able to adapt and accept Levi Miller playing the part. I always the thought the book had some flat spots, so the movie is better in keeping the pace going. I prayed that director Rachel Perkins wasn't going to turn this into a musical or something whimsical, fortunately that did not happen. Looking forward to getting the DVD.
