    Wonderful Adaptation--Absolutely Worth Your Time!

    As someone who enjoyed the film version of Come What May, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the book. As a firm believer that novelizations are merely a way to make more money off a movie, I didn’t know how this one could be that different. And as a busy college student with plenty to read already, I wasn’t sure it would be worth my time. I was wrong. Peter Forbes’s clear, engaging prose kept the humor from the movie alive, while conveying the messages central to the story. But more than retelling the film on paper, he expands it to add depth and life—not only did I enjoy Come What May, but I had trouble putting it down. The characters have clearer motivations and compelling back-stories, and even though I know the film’s plot backwards and forwards, I was still intrigued. Is it perfect? No; there were a few scenes which flowed better in the movie than in the book. But as a first full-length work, it is impressive. Peter honored the plot and the message of the film while creating his own richer and more compelling story that thoughtfully addresses issues our society is facing today. So is it a classic that will still be read in a thousand years? Probably not. Is it worth your time? Absolutely.
