If you’re a fan of John Green’s Paper Towns, you’re probably keenly awaiting the release of the movie version which has either just come out or is just about to. I went to a special preview screening earlier this week, so I’ve got for you a review. NOTE: this review will contain spoilers. That includes book spoilers, movie spoilers, and book-movie difference spoilers, (if there is such a thing).
As a John Green fan, and someone who originally pre-ordered and read TFIOS, I felt it necessary to see the new movie adaptation. So, a few nights ago I went, on my own, to see it. And even though it’s been out for a while, and everyone and their dog has reviewed it (even if they haven’t seen it), here I present to you my opinion, just in case it matters.
Because I’m so proud that I finally finished reading this series of books I’ve been trying to read since I was ~11, I’ve decided to give you a review of them. Also, I can’t come up with anything else to write about this week.
Spy X is a four-part series written by Peter Lerangis, and aimed at 10 to 12 year olds. The four books are called The Code, Hide And Seek, Proof Positive and Tunnel Vision, however I’m going to just refer to them as book 1, 2, 3, and 4, so it’s a bit easier to follow. As you can tell from the title, these books are about spies. More specifically, they’re about secret government organisations, conspiracies, missing persons, adventure, danger, code-cracking, strong female characters, and parental love. As always, I’ll try and keep this review pretty spoiler free, so that I don’t wreck the story for you, as I wouldn’t have wanted it spoiled for me. Continue Reading
So, this week I finally did what most true Nerdfighters and John Green fans did a few months ago: finish The Fault In Our Stars, a.k.a. TFIOS. The worst thing about this was I was one of the 150,000 people that got a preordered, and thus signed, copy of TFIOS so I’ve had absolutely no excuse for not having finished it much earlier. Although, maybe that’s a reflection on the book. If you’d like to read a proper review, read on…
