Perks of Being Made into a Movie

My review of Stephen Chbosky's Perks of Being a Wallflower went live on AAR today.  With 2,700 Amazon reviews (and probably more by the time you read this) and an average of 4 1/2 stars, the book seemed like one I would really enjoy.  I liked Daddy Long-Legs which was written as a series of letters, so why wouldn't I like Perks?

The answer is in the review.

My inital plan, before I read the book, was to read and then watch the film to see if the movie was even close to the written text.  Now, I'm thinking I can skip that step.  If the book didn't intrigue me, why should the movie?  Since I have no good answer to that question, I see no reason to waste my time.

Besides Once Upon a Time is about to start a new season, so I need all the free time I can get to watch what I tape since my husband refuses to watch it with me.  That's okay.  I'm fine to savor quality fairytale time by myself.
