Suicide Squad Book Review

Hey guys!

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.

The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz Book Review

Hello guys!

Today I wanted to review a book I had just finished reading- The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Wizard of Oz is a classic book written in 1900 by author L. Frank Baum. Most people haven’t read the book version but seen the live action film from 1939 which starred Judy Garland as the young, female lead character- Dorothy Gale.

After watching the movie several times throughout my life and reading the book. There are a lot of similarities and differences. I don’t want to name anything because it can easily give the book away. However, you get more insight about each of the characters. In the movie, you can tell that there’s a human, dog, lion, tin-man and a scarecrow. But in the book you actually learn they’re more than just the iconic characters.

I downloaded the book on my phone for free from the app store. There are several books in the series- you can buy the book set on Amazon. The book actually isn’t very long, but there are a ton of details and I never got confused on the story itself, but I had to remember what was happening in the book when I stopped reading for the day/night.

The only tough part that could be hard to understand was the language between the 1900’s and now. It’s similar to the way Shakespeare wrote but not as confusing. The words back then are very, very similar to the ones now, so it isn’t super confusing.

The book allows the readers to see the movie in their head while reading, visualizing the story in my opinion really gives a good understanding about what’s happening in the story. I definitely recommend this book, I think it’s great for any age because it’s a story every age would love because it’s a happ story, and there aren’t any slow parts.
