When I saw "The Fault in Our Stars" I pretty much went into knowing it was going to be a sad movie and planning to see a comedy immediately afterwards. I think I cried threw that entire movie... like a lot... like I almost couldn't see half the time I was watching it. And then I went to the comedy... I forget what movie I saw after it but I needed a laugh after all that crying.
Paper Towns from what I can tell of the trailers it looks like a much lighter toned movie but if my previous experience with John Green's work is anything to go by... should I even see this movie? Like I might check it out at some point but I'm really not in the mood for another tear jerker right now.
If you wouldn't recommend the movie to me specifically for the reasons I've already said, are there any books you would recommend I pick up instead. There aren't a lot of options for books where I live but ever since that first movie came out my local Wal-Mart has been stalking John Green books like crazy so right now is really the best time for me to actually start reading his books. (I've never actually read one before.) Again, I would prefer something that I'm not going to soak with my tears while I'm reading it. I don't even think I can read while crying. Given my reaction to the movie, I don't think I can ever read that book. My eyes would be too watery to focus on the words.
Also given that I've said this... if you do recommend the movie Paper Towns, I'll also pick up a copy of the book as well... Though I'll probably watch the movie first so I can get threw it without spending the entire time complaining about the inaccurate things that they changed from the book, as I often tend to do. (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the first Harry Potter, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, Holes, and many others I can't even think of right now.) Also do that with TV shows based on books I've read though that's a much shorter list. Basically just certain episodes of Goosebumps and the Animorphs TV series... which a lot of people here probably didn't even know existed. Most Goosebumps episodes are based on books I never read as I mostly stuck to the choose your own adventure books and a lot of those were never adapted into the TV series so there's very few stories that I know both the book and tv versions of.
