The Fault In Our Stars – Movie #Giveaway

The Fault In Our Stars - Movie #Giveaway

I haven’t read the novel “The Fault In Our Stars,” that the upcoming film is based on, but I think I’m nearly as excited as my friends who have to see this film hit the big screen.  From the previews, it looks like a warm, rich, deep, funny and all-too-real depiction of what happens when our reality doesn’t match up with the “norm.”

Have you read the book?  I’m still up-in-the-air as to whether to read the book prior to seeing the film or wait until after?  Do you prefer to read the book first or see the film?

I may just let this one ride, experience the film first and then naturally after I fall in love with the characters, opt to get to know them better by reading the novel.  Thoughts?

While we are thinking… how about an extended clip…

Hazel and Gus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel’s other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. 

Starring Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Willem Dafoe, Nat Wolff, Laura Dern, Sam Trammell, Mike Birbiglia, and Emily Peachey

    Woww!! I want this book because it is very difficult to get this book in Indonesia! So, would you give it to me? hihihhihi. 😀 I would rather read a novel than seeing the movie, because I think it would be better if we imagine what we read compared to the first direct look at the visualization. But, if I’ve finished reading what one book (with note if the book had been filmed), I would immediately seek out the film and my shadow compare with what is in the film. Then, I will assess the different values ​​between the novel and the film. 😀

    I sometimes like to read the book first. I find that many times the movie is different than the book. I did read Fault in Our Stars and can’t wait to see the movie with my daughters.
    Thank you!

    I prefer to read the book. The book is always much better than the movie. If I see the movie first and it’s a bomb, then I never want to read the book.

    I usually like to read the book first because I feel like I’m familiar with the story and I know certain things that may not be shown in the movie. The movie always has certain things that are left out and I like knowing them while I’m watching. Thank you.

    I prefer reading the book first. I’ve read TFIOS and am really glad I did because I can see a slight straying from the books timeline (when and where things were said) in the trailers. Still, I think this will be a must see summer movie. Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway. I have my fingers crossed I’ll win it for my daughter.

    Always read the book first and then watch it unfold on the big screen. I have it playing out in my own mind as I read and it is neat to kind of see it come to life so to speak.

It was so good that I could picture things in my mind of what I was reading! Read the book first then watch the movie!
