    "I had read War Horse when it came out in book form, and it was an ok book. They brought it to the big screen later, and I watched it on a whim. While it matched the book pretty good, I just didn't find the whole story that interesting, so I wouldn't rank it up there. It was a good adaptation of the book though."

    "Ah, a new book from a man from the land of the three-named people, Jonathan Safran Foer. Like, why can't his parents just give him two names like the rest of us? But I digress. The book is incredibly well-written and made me cry at the end when Oskar (SPOILER ALERT) is killed in a terrorist attack. Make America Great Again!"

    "The old saying "the book is better than the movie" rings true here as well. I loved the book so much, but the movie didn't really do it for me. Skip the movie and get this fantastic book and great addition to the series."

    "This felt really boring to me. I don't think this is even close to one of the best books. I mean comparing the movie to the book the book is way better but that really isn't saying much. I can't recommend this to anyone. The thing about it is I love reading a story and then watching the movie that it was made into to see it from a different perspective. There are very few stories I don't end up liking and this was sadly one of them."

It's no deformity, no disease. And I'll,stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell. Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly."
