I remember reading this book a few months after I finished reading Stephanie Mayer's Twilight series a few years ago. This was around the time I had finally discovered that I really enjoyed paranormal novels. At the time I can confidently say that I was indifferent to the novel, too bad I can't say the same of the movie.
Somethings just felt off about this movie. I don't know how to put it into words. I think it was way too fast paced and glossed over too much of the story. At times it felt like the acting was strained because everyone seemed monotoned and emotionless. I'd also like to point out the CGI wings. What was up with those? They were so strange. I also didn't understand the random fog in the pool scene. If it was to add drama and make the scene overall spooky, it did the complete opposite for me.
From what little I remember of it all Cam was a much bigger part of the initial storyline. It felt like he had 5 scenes in this whole movie. I despise movie Daniel more than book Daniel. I can't tell you how Daniel is in the books because (let's be honest) I didn't like him all that much. If he's half the jacka** in the book as he was in the movie I'm better off alone.
Conspiracy Theory: For a moment (when Luce was "picking") I thought it would have been fascinating to make her pick Cam. It's a fantasy and most people will probably hurt me if it ever came true, but I still think it'd be a better story. Luce and Daniel's love seemed so forced in this movie.
