Back in May I finished the book Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. It was the first book to get me out of my reading rut, at least for a little while, this year. It was hard to put down, it had a great story line, characters, and was very well written to me. So it's been a crazy few months (when isn't right?!), and I was never able to catch the movie in theaters. I tried, I really did, but it just never seemed to work out. But anyway, on Tuesday the movie version of Everything, Everything hit Redbox, so I reserved my copy, and picked it up after work!
My review of Everything, Everything, the movie:

I did notice something that bothered me...I know this is going to maybe sound a little petty...but Madeline has this rare disease that does not allow her to go outside, due to exposure to germs. So because she has such a low immune system, one that is almost nonexistent, her house has to be 100% decontaminated and has these systems by the door, that sanitizes anyone that comes into the house. Anyway, throughout the movie Madeline wears these all white, Birkenstock sandals.
They look like these...

I know, I know, it's a movie, let's not get too picky. But that stuck out even for my husband, who hasn't read the book, but who knew what it was about, and actually liked the movie too!
But that was my only complaint.
I will admit, I liked reading the story more than actually watching it. It was more detailed, and translated into a motion picture did have it be a little slow at times. Overall, though they did a great job! It was a lot like the book I thought!
