I am Number Four

Hey this is my first time actually using this.:smileyhappy:

 I just finished I am number four. It was definitely different. I was wondering what other people thought of it and has anybody else heard about it being turned into a movie?

Didn't like it and yes I'm pretty sure it's becoming a movie.

I enjoyed the book.  The movie looks pretty good from the trailer I saw.

Re: I am Number Four

This book was AMAZING! I just loved it and I could not get my head out of it. It is becoming a movie and will be coming out FEB. 18, 2011. This makes me nervous because books into movies are not as good as the books, like ever. Even Harry Potter and I love Harry Potter. So hopes that answers your question :smileyhappy:

Re: I am Number Four

LOL! I'm with Cheyenne. I will go see it just because Alex Pettyfer is in it. Now as long as they cast him as Jace in TMI I will be very pleased!

Re: I am Number Four

I read the book The Maze Runner and I enjoyed it! It was very interesting and unique and I haven't read that many alien-type books so that was newer for me. =) The only real complaint I had about the book was that some parts seemed not as interesting and didn't always keep my attention but there were few. Another thing is that since it is boys POV sometimes I had a hard time reading it because I didn't like Sarah (I think that was her name) all that much I mean I thought she was nice and all but her character didn't seem very deep. I liked Sam though!!

 

I also watched the movie and thought they did a pretty good jobb making the movie. The first part of the movie followed about the same as the book with naturally some details missing. But then the second part of the movie was kind of a mixed up version of the book. Like some details I was very surprised when they happened in the movie.

 

Overall I thought both the book and movie were pretty good!! But read the book first!!
