I've read the entire series. First let me tell you that I loved the first two books. I hated the third. I mean I really hated it. I hated how the book read. I hated how the characters were written and I hated the ending. To me personally it felt like Veronica Roth (the author) wrote the book based on the opinions of others and didn't feel like she wrote the book who the first two were wrote. With that said, I still wanted to see the movie. I had really enjoyed the first book and fell in love with some of the characters. I also loved the second book so I wanted to see it opening weekend.
Well... I thought it was just ok. I think they left out a lot of important things that the audience would need to know to really understand the story. The movie also had certain parts completely unlike the book. It was as if they were like, "Oh I don't like that! Let's just change it to what we like." Um... no. That's not how it should go. So I thought the movie in general was just OK. I probably won't buy it on dvd and that says a lot for me.
In addition to going to the movies, I did the always dreaded yard work. Since spring is here in northern California the grass is going crazy, the plants and flowers are sprouting and the weeds are in full force. It's basically the pits. My yard is huge. Thankfully, Beezy has been helping me this year to work on the yard.
I also went to a Kings game this week. I hadn't been to one since January! Crazy! We use to go all the time but since they keep losing...
KingsThe three day weekend went by far too quickly.
