I adored the book.  I've read it three times and have listened to the audio book twice.

And it's going to be a movie!!

I have some things to say:

  • I'm rather pleased with the casting.
  • I already see evidence of changing some plot around.. we'll see how it pans out.
  • That was some weird bait and switch, showing her in her aptitude test, then switching to (presumably) footage of her fear landscape!
  • I pictured Dauntless headquarters as being less... rubble.
  • They are obviously introducing you to Jeanine Matthews WAY earlier than in the book.  Like she's doing Marcus Eaton's job of giving the speech at the Choosing Ceremony
  • The zip line!!
I'm also interested to see how a book written in a rather tight first-person voice will translate to the screen.  I thought that they were pretty successful with The Hunger Games (which had a similar issue).

Is it March yet?
