The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain has many amazing elements within its story but, these elements were not the first time it was used. Many other stories has used these elements before. Old stories like Robin Hood, Prometheus, and Cinderella are only some of the stories in which they used the elements before. Modern fiction is extremely similar to older works such as myths, traditional stories, and religious works based as characterization, theme, and plot.
Have you ever read a book and then watched the movie, hoping it will be exactly the same? Let me guess, you were probably disappointed. For my first quarter book report, I read and watched The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. I think the book was very detailed, interesting, and fun to read. However, I was unfortunately let down by this movie. The movie did not follow the storybook like I thought it would. Some of the characters had different names, and most importantly the events that happened in the book either were totally different in the movie, or did not happen at all. This movie did not follow the storyline of the book!

Honestly I thought that the movie had such a simple story but at the same time it is so complex. The way it was delivered it was amazing, it's such a moving film. The actor’s were amazing, there isn’t anything I would want to change about this film. I would 100% recommend this movie to anyone, its so inspiring and it really makes you think.

Although I will always love the original, the script, the movie was so fun to watch. We got know why lady bracknell is who she is since she apparently was a dancer and got life by having a baby. We found out instead of hugging miss prism got engaged to dr. chasuble which was interesting. Although I want to say what the real change was in the movie compared to the script you got have to watch the movie all the way through. It will be the biggest surprise of your
Overall, the movie and book have many differences and similarities, some more important than others. The story still is clear without many scenes from the book, but the movie would have more thought in it.
The movie is, most likely, done well enough to intrigue its intended audience. It captured the theme and story line of the book. It falls short, though, when compared to the beautiful, sensitive and contemplative prose of Natalie Babbitt. One could only hope that a viewing of the film will lead the watcher to try the book and be delighted all the more.
