Danville Public Library has been using Beanstack for reading programs this year, where patrons can track their reading and share reviews. For the next few weeks, we’ll be highlighting Patron reviews from Beanstack.
Having seen the various movie versions before ever reading the books I am surprised the movies were as good as they were with the book being so tangled. The story is vastly different from the movie and while some of the beloved characters exist the way I thought they would from my movie experience the plot jumps everywhere and creates this almost manic thread that is hard for a reader to follow. I am surprised that this is a children’s classic story. I think I would have enjoyed the zany characters and story more as a child, but having read it for the first time as an adult I was not impressed with the jumping plot.
