The book is terrible. Please create a better dialogue for the actors. If it’s anything like the book, it’s unwatchable. Fake!!!!
I have to route for Bookclub and it is torture.
COMPLETELY disagree. This book is very good, very well to stay engaged, fast paced and has a great plot. It’s a really great read, especially for young adults
