But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is discovering all kinds of things about his friends, his family … and himself.” –Goodreads
This was so cute!
The book and the show are so good! I have all positive things to say about both, so the review is going to be a mix of both.
Agh!!! I was reading Volume 2 in the library and I kept squealing. Thankfully I was not in the quiet study section.
Literally, Nick and Charlie are my favorite couple ever! They are so cute and unproblematic.
The illustrations are amazing in the book. I love their interactions and all the little leaves floating around. It is just so cute. That was one of my favorite things about the show, that they had the leaves floating around whenever something good happened.
I feel like the show brought so much more to the characters. I was so impressed by the casting. They found a perfect Charlie Spring and Nick Nelson. The background characters, Tao (what was up with his hair?), Elle, Dary, and Tara were all perfect. They literally look exactly like their characters in the drawings.
We also got more background and got to see the characters interact without Charlie and Nick which was so fun. I really love the Tara and Darcy storyline. It was really interesting to see more of their character and more of their coming out as a couple.
All the tension and cuteness of the comic were in the show. It was so refreshing to have such a well-done book-to-movie adaptation. There were a few things missing and there were a few things added, but it was so amazing.
I binged the whole show in a day and I read Volume 2 within a day. I am obsessed with their story and I want a season 2. I cannot wait to read Volume 3.
As always, thanks for reading,
