To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – Book and Movie Review

Never heard if that book?! Where do you love then? On another planet? No worries I’ve got it decoded here!

1.Book Review ——

I read it’s E-Books recently (where do you suppose will I get a paperback in this lockdown πŸ˜‘)and believe me it’s that sassy Teenage story. Like, you would enjoy every part of it and its hard to put the book down. Now let’s talk about the book in detail –

Plot

This story revolves around a girl – Lara Jean who falls in this puzzled maze of Love. As a child, Lara Jean has written 5 letters to her 5 crushes; but had never sent them. She was too shy for that but as she becomes 16, she believes that the Letters hold a great power – It helps her to just let out all her feelings. In the words of Lara Jean – “Whenever, I read my letters, I get to know how powerful our emotions can be.”

Talking about the setting – She has 2sisters and a dad(her mom died when she was young). So her older sister Margot (who is 2years older than Lara) took care of the house till now. But she decides to go to college in Scotland to study Anthropology. So now Lara Jean is the older sister and the role model for her younger sister – Kitty (6th grade)

The main characters in this story besides the above mentioned people are – Josh(their neighbour and Margot’s Boyfriend) , Peter Kavinsky, Genevieve (Peter’s Girlfriend) and Chris ( Genevieve’s cousin and Lara Jean’s Best Friend) . So the story unveils itself as the 5 letters gets posted by someone anonymous and 5 of her PAST crushes get the letters at the SAME TIME.

I got goosebumps when I read it. I mean this is the worst nightmare for any teenager! πŸ˜… So as the story continues Lara Jean becomes more and more messed up and many things await that she didn’t have a clue of!

It’s a MUST READ book. (If you love Young Adult genre) . I recently read it’s E-Book. Here’s a link to that –

2.Movie Review —-

I watched it’s Movie yesterday and it’s my HONEST REVIEW about it!

The movie to be honest was good. It was released on Netflix so of course it received a lot of appreciation and many of my friends were talking about it for days. But here’s what I think – There’s no rule to like what everyone does. Even Lara Jean said it ! πŸ˜‰

What I liked about the Movie —

1. The movie’s Star cast was really very good and they took the actors as described in the book.

2. Some scenes were very precise about whatever was written in the book and they added some humour in the movie which increased the fun!

This is what Chris said to Lara Jean’s father πŸ˜‚

3. And who doesn’t love “I like me better” Song by Lauv? They just inserted the right song at the right place! 😻

What I didn’t like about the movie—-

(Alert – If you haven’t read the book and want to read it in future then don’t read this section. Some spoilers might ruin your reading experience!)

1. When the hell did Genevieve snatch Lara Jean’s favourite Scrunchie from Peter and showed off at the end of the ski trip?! May be I am blind but millions of those who have read the book aren’t! I mean what’s the point if adding some unnecessary scenes instead of adding the already mentioned stories in the book?

2. And when did Peter shout in front of the school not to bother Lara Jean about all that happened in the Ski Trip?! I mean of course it’s a good initiative and a good way to represent how good Peter is…. But it’s false. He never did that. They didn’t at all have that talk and those pictures in front of Lara Jean’s Locker.

3. Scenes I wished were added in the movie which were there in the book –

  • Recital Party mess scene
  • Going to buy antique chairs with Peter
  • Dance Battle scene
  • Kitty getting a Dog (at last!)
  • The story behind her Mom’s death
  • How Genevieve and Lara used to be BFFs

Of course a 1hour 30 minutes movie can’t have so much filled in it…. But I guess some part could have been added. In short, I LOVED THE MOVIE. {Not everything is perfect} And the Book is πŸ’œ

I am currently reading it’s 2nd part – “P.S-I still Love you” and will definitely watch it’s movie. And guess what? I will be writing a review in it too πŸ˜‰ Do let me know what you think about the movie and the book if you have watched or read it…. 😻

  1. THIS BOOK IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE BOOK. EVER. Everything you said about it, I absolutely agree! I’ve read it nearly ten times .. like I said, my favorite πŸ˜‰ I also completely agree with all of the scenes that SHOULD have been included in the movie.
