I know not all books that turn into a movie are exactly like the book but this didn't even really follow the story. It didn't show much from the book at all and that was really disappointing.
I mean the movie was still really sweet and I did enjoy it but if you read the book you probably share the same disappointment of a lot of things that made it really a great story. So I guess what I am getting at is the movie left out the good storytelling. Everything in the movie happened too fast and just got thrown together.
As for the characters they all fit perfect, I just really wish it would have followed the story line of the book.
