Wonder: A Beautiful Movie, Even Better Book | Book Vs Movie.

A lot of them film fanatics will always question:
Why read the book, when you can see the movie?
Because the book is always better. Duh!
But is it, really?

A Blog Post Series about my thoughts on the age-old question: Book Vs Movie?

Goodreads Synopsis:

August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face.

 

 

 


Wonder! I like how it’s written in multiple-POVs. You get to know their thoughts and why they reacted how they did. Especially Jack or Olivia, since I guess they were really affected the most after August of course.  However, in the movie they did miss out on Summer’s and Justin’s POV which I think would have been nice to see too. The book also has his medical complications like him having to put hearing aids or the part where Jack is being bullied by the other people in school and how Justin is witness to that and tries to stand up for him.

I loved August’s character. I just wanted to hug him and tell him everything is going to be okay and that even though there are always going to be people like Julian but there are also people like Jack and Summer, so it’s “COOL BEANS”… and that you truly are a Wonder. I guess the story really highlights the perspective of those not so lucky children out there.
Even though this is a middle-grade book, I highly recommend this as a must-read for everyone out there. The world definitely needs more kindness.

“When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.”

This story teaches a lot more than kindness. It teaches you  – 1) how not to bully others about the way they look or talk. 2) You never know what the other person is going through, so just show a little kindness than necessary 3) the struggle for acceptance and empathy.

“I think there should be a rule that everyone in the world should get a standing ovation at least once in their lives.”

Yes! August does get an award for attending Middle School, and I guess that was a hell lot of courage he showed there. I just loved how no matter how rudely he was being treated he still had some great humor left in him although they were dark and self-deprecating jokes. His own way of showing how much that affected him. Man, I just want to hug this kid. This book made me >< weep like a baby ><

A story about compassion, and human connection. It is a proof to the strength within us, not only to withstand the pain of stinging words but to take a stand for what we believe is right.



Now finally coming on to the question of  Book Vs Movie?

The plot of this story is just so compelling and heart-warming, it literally made me cry several times both in the movie and while reading the book. The movie misses out on a few details which i thought were truly essential. I literally never wanted this book to end.

The Verdict?  A beautiful movie… but like always.. an even better book!

Have you read this book or watched the movie?
