Not as good as the book
12 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

The book is much better. It is more realistic and the charcters' motivations are better presented. Their back stories are absent in the film. In real life, any student would have broken down much earlier.

The acting, especially Tori's, is not good at all. However, the end was much more dramatic and exciting than in the book.
