Malverne Teen Book and Movie Comparison Club
Each month we’ll read a book, watch the movie together
and then talk about the differences over snacks!
Like every club, this one has rules but just a few.
Join this Paper & Popcorn’s reminder text group, text this message @paperpop to (516) 874-3823 to join.
Book Pick Up Spot is at the Youth Services desk in the blue basket.
- You need to check out a book on YOUR library card.
- Each book has a bookmark inside with the date of the next meeting.
- If there are no more books left, please fill out a slip and leave it for Jody, she’ll get you one.
- Please sign the clipboard so we know you have a book.
- If you want to join our club, feel free. Please take a list of rules from the folder, a book and leave us a note! All teens are welcomed!!

Everyone liked the book.
While we were watching the movie we noticed some differences. R was more like M in the book, he was the unemployed one. R didn’t get married or “have” kids. Someone brought up that this book/movie was like Romeo and Juliet, the characters names are R and Julie.
We all liked the movie too. There were funny parts, we watched the bloopers after too. We discussed if zombies could be cured.

Everyone liked this book! The movie was goo too but WOW, it went slow!!
During the movie, we notice some differences:
The story takes place in France but they have British accents.
In the book, Isabelle picks locks but in the movie Hugo does.
The automaton is kept at Hugo’s home in the movie but at the museum in the book.
Isabelle’s movie theatre friend, Entienne, isn’t in the movie. This changes how they meet the author later on in the movie.

Only one member showed up but we still watched the movie. Some of the acting made us laugh and we both thought Pony’s new hair looked horrible and would make he stick out more to the cops. But we thought it was pretty close to the movie.
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Some complaints about this movie…
Why is Annabeth’s hair brown, it’s suppose she’s suppose to be blonde!! Percy and Annabeth both look older then they are suppose to be. One lotus flower and they are acting all drunk. We thought the casino looked different from what we read in the book.
