"I liked the book, it added details that the film didn’t have. "
"It was a good book and there was nothing wrong with it but it was a little lacklustre for me. I listened to the audiobook and did not love the audio quality which makes me think I might have liked it more in text. There is meh tension throughout the book. The end sold me a bit more. It was very cheesy and sweet. Overall not a favourite of mine but not a bad book at all! 1-1.5/5 🌶 level. "
