    "After watching the 2012 adaptation of Anna Karenina a while back, I became interested in reading the original source material to see how well it holds up in comparison. Since the original version is a massive 864 pages in size, I opted to read this abridged 132 page abridged version instead. After all, I don't have a lot of spare time for reading as I'd like these days. This I feel was a mistake, however, as the abridged version turned out to be pretty meh even by the movie's standards. It's almost 4th grade level translation of great literature or something. I definitely wasn't impressed, and I suppose I'll just have to bite the bullet and read the original 800+ text sometime instead."

    "The book definitely sounds like it would make a great movie, but as of yet it is only optioned by Summit Entertainment. The author herself is not sure if or when it will be fully realized and developed into a movie as of yet, but it is assuredly being worked on somewhere at Summit. As for IF it would make a good movie, absolutely! The Night Circus is the tale of two young people who grow up thinking they are normal kids when suddenly a mysterious circus appears in town at night. They soon find out they were secretly preparing their whole lives for a magical showdown in that circus, and along the way fall in love!"

    "This is definitely one of the better romance novels that was then subsequently turned into a movie. I really enjoyed the novel much more than the movie (which is fairly rare these days). The author, JoJo Moyes, has written a number of other books in her career but this is definitely one of her best books. I found that I enjoyed the book much more while I was in the process of reading it but the book didn't really remain with me after I finished it which is why I am only giving it a "4". I would definitely recommend picking this up if you need a good and entertaining read this summer."

    "I love romantic movies and am always watching them. Often when a movie is based on a book I find the movie to be much worse than the book. But that wasn't the case at all for "Unbearable Lightness of Being." It was one of my favorite books and I feel like the movie truly brought the book to life allowing us to delve deeply into the character's heads and understand their feelings. I loved it and thought it was great overall!"

    "Hauntingly accurate novel about the human condition, particularly for those who have struggled trying to conceive. Also, the story serves as a reminder that morality is relative, and helps us examine our own thoughts and choices in this scenario laid out."

    "This book have a traditional fury beast that was pretty good and predictable. It have some total cheesy and love moments that makes easy to read. There were moments in this story when I just wanted to snuggle the characters with love."
