Really? I honestly thought the book was 100x better. The movie doesn’t portray Charlie well enough, I think. He just seems like a shy kid, but he’s actually pretty fucked up.
Plus, one of my favorite thing about the book is that his writing subtly gets better, at the beginning of the books in his letters his sentences are jumbled and run ons and such, and it just subtly gets better throughout the book. I know they can’t show that in the movie, but that’s one of my favorite things about the book.
Lastly, the first thing I thought when I heard they were making a movie is that the actor playing Charlie better be really good at crying, he never freaking cried in the movie. Well, I think he did once? Regardless, he cries all the time in the book, was expecting it so in the movie.
Those are the three main reasons I think the book was better.
