Tonight we finished the book and compared the book to the movie. Both Nick and Sam noticed some differences but not too many. They both liked the book and movie and are looking forward to reading the second book in the series. Or I should say...they are looking forward to me reading the second book ;)
I do have to say that I did try to read this book over 10 years ago and found it rather boring. I was rather surprised at how much I enjoyed it the second time around. Probably has to do with the excitement that beamed from my children.
I want to thank Elisabeth (my niece)for giving me her honest opinion and recommendation of the book. She was right, both Nick and Sam loved it :)
