I thought the film version was pretty good. If I have never read the book I would have thought it was excellant. But because I read the book I thought it did not serve the book justice. It sort of skimmed thought each section of the book, skipping important parts and some of the scenes were not even in the book. I thought they should have made the movie more true to the book. A movie that was based on a book that I saw once called “Holes”, I thought was really gave justice to the book. I wish it was more like that!

I thought the film version was very good. The actors and actress were just like I pictured them. The parts of the book that were left out should have been put into the movie, especially the part where Lennie, Candy, and Curley’s wife are all in the same room. Besides that the movie was great.

I liked to movie better than the book. When we read the book in class, i didnt realli like it because it got to confusing for me at times. The movie didnt have as many parts that in the book. The most important parts were in the movie.

The film version has some main simularities as the book but has alot more differences.

I think that the film version of the movie had the main idea of the book but it left out a lot of key details that made Steinbeck’s book awesome.

I like the movie, but not better than the book. There were alot of things missing from the movie that was in the book. If someone hadn’t have read the book they wouldnt have understood the movie well at all.

I liked the book better, the movie tried to change up some parts and it just didn’t work out. For example, when Curley’s wife was talking to George in the barn. George didn’t like Curley’s wife so why would he talk to her? Also, I feel Lennie’s death was more rushed in the movie, which made it seem not as hard for George to shoot him.

Comment by apeters

i thought the book wasnt as good as the movie because the book was more confusing. The movie also put a picture in my head. But i thought the book was more detailed then the movie and the movie was quicker.

Comment by jdkeller

i thought the book was better because it seemed to give more detail…but the movie was more dramatic and brought a new aspect from the book.

I think the film version was better than the book, but the book was better in some parts because it described things better.

Comment by ferxsurexbombb

I think the book is better because the movie left alot out. It showed alot of the emotion in the movie thought.

Comment by evanhouty

I thought it represented the book good. But i thought some characters were different lie george, he was more aggressive with lennie than in the book.
