Brightwaters Book Reviews ,

Read this book!

Way better than the movie.

ChrisDQ82 ,

great

it’s certainly a great book. this is one time where i do not agree that the book is better than the movie though. i’m not saying that book isn’t great, but this is one story where seeing these creatures was better than reading about them. and steven spielberg brought them truly to life.

the book has characters that are different, added and changed scenarios, but it feels like the plot is 80% the same. different enough you will get enjoyment out of this. i loved it.

Obviously, different than the movie

But I didn’t expect the story to be so interesting. It’s so good. Ends of chapters left me saying “just one more” till I missed hours of sleep. I loved this book and I’m not really a book reader.
