So...we all know that the book is ALWAYS better than the movie.
Sometimes the movie can be just as good as the book (i.e. Harry Potter) and SOMETIMES the movie can TOTALLY destroy every positive thought you had about the book (ugh. Beautiful Creatures...anyone?).
Well this weekend I went to see The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones with mi madre and was pleasantly surprised that ... it was close to the book! Yippee!
They changed some things in the movie from the book -- but in my opinion --- it was for the better.
If you remember this post I was really put off by the "twist" they threw. So much so that I hesitated to read the second book.
After seeing the movie this weekend...I went home and picked up book #3 - the movie got me interested in the story again.
My only big criticism is that Jace is suppose to be like super hot in the book. In the movie...he's not ... so much BUUUUT the more you watch the movie the better looking he becomes.
If you read and liked the book then the movie is worth it.
Have you seen this movie yet? Will you see it?
