Hubby took me to the movies…Well I don’t know if that’s exactly the right was to phrase that. I told him there was a movie out I wanted to see and hinted that he could take me and he agreed.
I don’t go to the movies very often anymore. They are available on line so quickly now days it’s hardly worth going to the theater. This one…I wanted to see though. I’ve long been a big fan of Charles Martin. He’s an author of some of my favorite books. Nicholas Sparks has a huge claim to fame but I honestly like Charles Martin better. They have a similar style but as I said, I like Martin better.
One of the first book written by him that I read was The Mountain Between Us: A Novel. After I read it, I had to read more and I’m so glad I did.
I’ve always wondered why Martin’s books weren’t movies. They all are perfect for movies. Well finally it happened!
So did we like the movie….I did but as with lots of books to movie adaptations, I liked the book better. It was more indepth…no real sex scenes. Just better. I’ll be honest, I like the way my mind pictures, sees and interprets things better than Hollywood does. But would I recommend it. Yes…I would. It was a good date movie. I’ll definitely go to more movies should other of his books get made into movies.
Here’s the trailer….
By the way…I put the book on my online library hold again….I want to listen to again to see how the two differ. Did you know I was a English major for a semester or two in college? The grammar thing was too much for me and the young kid bug hit me and moved majors to be an elementary teacher. I love comparing books to movies. Weird. I know….
