I’m sorry I haven’t posted much on this blog, that’s because I was thinking of things to say on here. First, I am going to just announce that over at The Complicated Fashion (TCF) we are having a Black Friday/Holiday sale, so if you want more info on that, go check out the fashion blog! (FRIDAYSALE is the promo code to get free shipping within the U.S. Only). To buy a product, visit: The Complicated Fashion Webstore!
Now, onto the book review!
This book is an adaptation from the film, so going in, there are more similarities than differences. Most of the time the movie is based off of the book and they make several changes to fit their budget. However, for this book, there is a different order in which you’re introduced to the characters. It’s the same scenes as the movie but you get introduced to the characters in a random order.
In the movie, you learn of the back story but when Amanda Waller talks about them when assembling the squad. In the book, there’s a chapter dedicated to most of the members of the squad in which you learn who they were before being turned into the bad guys we are familiar with. The most detailed character that I remember from the first chapter was June Moon who soon became Enchantress.
If you haven’t seen the movie, I recommend you do so because it is a lot better than people make it out to be. A lot of people say that it wasn’t good and after seeing the movie several times, it is a lot better and you have to wonder why the critics and some of the public don’t like the movie.
I bought the book hard copy from Target, so if you have a Target nearby you can buy the book from there, you can also buy the book at Barnes and Noble, eBay and Amazon.
If you have seen the movie but you’re looking to read the book, the story is exactly the same (obviously) but the details in the book I think are a lot more clear than the movie. If you haven’t seen the movie but want a good book to read during this holiday season, then this book is a great one for you.
