The book was filled with different emotions and a variety of scenes. After every chapter it leaves you wanting to know more. I enjoyed the book more than the movie itself because it felt more intriguing. Every scene I would read felt real and I was able to picture all the different characters and the scenes. The mystery of the story is what made the book better then movie. The book can bring out all different type of emotions can even change someone's perspective on certainsituations and views. The book can be a little violent but nothing to explicet its more of a romance filled with mysterty and intruging scenes.I reccomded the book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery book but also has some romance. Reading the book first is reccomended before watching the movie because it provides you a better understanding on the story and the mystery behind it.
