READ Single White Female ä John Lutz – ecogenlife.org
The damn trash at one pointThe only downside of the book version is the incredibly weak and abrupt ending Allie went through complete hell and really grieved from the betrayal and loss of her lover and the epilogue is like well she moved to another state and lives in the suburbs nowyup The author s note about his experience visiting the set of the movie adaptation was really adorable and it was nice to hear a positive experience of an author s work being changed for the screen nice to learn This was a very ick and easy read I found I didn t like either Allie or Hedra Allie is conceited and Hedra is obviously wackedI sa It s hard to judge this book on its own because I m a huge fan of the film which is why I read it And it s like a rough draft that was made a lot better The film is much thrilling and psychological with Hedra s character being much dangerous realistic and driven Allie is also better in the movie she s ite annoying in the book The book feels dated the dialogue is stilted and the characters feel like walk on puppets to fit the plot rather than real people There was a few derogatory remarks about gay people and animals I didn t like tooShe wanted to do this right didn t want to attract the wrong kind of people E together in their small New York apartment it becomes clear that Hedra doesn't merely admire Allie she actually wants to be Allie And she.
The book is so distinctly different in tone and direction than the film that you might as well consider them separate entities that just happen to share some character names This is not necessarily a bad thing though as the book takes a restrained slow burn approach to the suspense and tension between Allie and Hedra that I think worked well for a rainy day when you just want a moody book that doesn t rush itself Some characters are developed better than the film and behave in ways that will surprise you and add a layer of dimension but for the most part a lot of motive background and reasoning is left hinted at or completely nsaid to increase the sense of paranoia Hedra doesn t just come out and drop exposition like Hey I m psychotically obsessed with you because my twin died and I ve always felt incomplete Instead you have to read in between the lines and pick The Queens Choice up on little pieces of dialogue and police procedural assumptions to form a picture of her issues Allie was much resilient and self aware in the book in my opinion and suspected something a bit off in her new roommate from the start When she is faced with theltimate isolation and betrayal she was willing to buckle down and do what she had to do including eating out of. Allie's new roommate Hedra at first just seems a shy awkward woman in search of a role model or a big sister But as the two settle in to lif.
