open the pages, read the words, savor the magic
I’ve posted the ALVH movie review in my movie blog (click here to read the review).
I’m not going to lie: the movie was not as stellar as the book. Anyone who’s a fan of the books will probably be scrunching their noses in confusion and/or disappointment. As a vampire movie, though, it does its job. But keep your expectations low, especially if you liked the book as much as I do.
That said, I’m still recommending the book. While the movie may fall short of my expectations, the original book is still marvelous.
