I hesitated before buying this film because of the pocket that seemed horror movie. I finally bought it for its low price and I was really surprise of the content. it's an interresting story that we did not guess the end! suspence a little but not horror.
I would have to say that this was not at all like the book...I'm 14 and since I read the book I thought it would be fine,seeing as I was sure I'd know what would happen, but as usual the books are always better than the movies. There seemed to be a scary part to every scene. It was way different than the book though...in some good ways and in some bad. I would not recommend this to young children--because if they're like me they'd be scared to tears.
