Henry Bowers, the unhinged psychopath who Pennywise seems to have a soft spot for, has a similar subplot to the novel, aside from his big conflict with Mike. In the book, Henry seriously injures Mike, hospitalizing him, which stops Mike from entering the sewers with the Losers, further weakening the group. The film gives Mike more of an active role taking down Pennywise, but in doing so, completely removes the threat from Henry, whose intimidating presence has zero consequences to the story.
In fact, Maturin is said to have created the entire universe by vomiting it out, so the turtle is essentially God, in the Steven King-verse, anyway. Maybe would've gotten a lot more stars and a way better review. I feel like I need a happy book or happy juice to make my day shine a little bit brighter.

Not horrible, but too predictable. Moneybags is drawn as such an awful mismatch for her that one knows from the start it will not last.
May 17, Joan rated it did not like it Shelves: The cover claims "national best seller. This book seemed to me much like a phonebook with a few vivid recreational-sex scenes thrown in. Well, actually there WAS a sorta plot, albeit a very shallow and predictable one.
The characters, whose thought processes would have been more appropriate to year-olds, were supposedly twenty- and thirty-something singles. Actually they were cardboard cutouts.
Aug 19, Kat rated it liked it Shelves: This book was just what I needed right now. An average chick-lit, not mind-bending or anything of the sort, just a simple, predictable tale of the search for love. I just wish the book had focused more on the interesting relationship than the boring one. The interesting relationship was secondary in this book, and it was frustrating to have to wait for it to re-appear all the time.

Aug 12, Shamsh rated it really liked it. Jane Green manages to find perfect balance between funny and relaxing chick-lit and realistic, sometimes bittersweet prose. This book is light without being shallow and sweet without being sugar-coated.
