According to Darren its a stand alone whereas they used his characters and bits of the storyline to make a film.

I think the better question would be why ANY movie based off a book is so far off from the book.

Yeah it’s like they can’t ever get the movie right!

Its Annoying When They Change A Books Storyline To Suit A Movie

Dont you hate it when the book your reading takes so many dramatic twists and turns, that its not really a road any more, just a mass of corners.

If I was an apple pie, the apples inside would be orange.

This statement is false. PARADOXXXX. I love you Portal 2

Everyone! the reason the mivie is so far off from the book is beacuse Mr.shan Didnt direct it. Someone should have let him be a part of the production of the movie. (go daran shan FAns)

I think Darren chose not to be part of the production. I don’t blame him. While it might have been better if he was, if I were him and the movie still tanked, I wouldn’t want to be associated with it. I mean look what happened with The Last Airbender, and the creators of the original Avatar the Last Airbender cartoon series were part of the production.

Yeah, that’s Hollywood for you. Although there are a few exceptions where the movie lives up to the book it’s following… At least in my opinion.
