I read the book in 2 days, and absolutely loved it! I only bought it because I wanted to watch the film.
The DUFF was so gripping and written in such a brilliant way, that I couldn’t put it down.
You really get involved with the characters, and they always give you such a laugh!
Unfortunately the film did no wonders for me. I expected the book to movie interpretation to be alot more accurate, but they’re nothing alike.
I could only pick differences: *spoilers sections* (skip to normal).
Bianca’s Dad isn’t around, and the part in the book where they have an argument, makes it alot more emotional.
Wesley in the book, is rich and lives in a mansion- in the film Bianca and Wesley live nextdoor to each other and they’ve known each other since childhood.
Sadly I think the idea of Bianca and Wesley living next to each other ruins the concepts of the book. I also wish that the Dad part from the book was included, because it forms a major part in the book.
On the bright side, I did love the ending of the film, in comparison to the book. It was alot more heart warming and exciting.
I’d give the book 4.5 🌟🌟🌟🌟Gold stars.
I’d give the film 4 silver stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
