City of Bones Book Vs. Movie

City of Bones Book Vs. Movie

The book City of Bones is a great book that puts the reader into the amazing world of Shadowhunters. When I heard that they made this book into a movie, I thought that they could do really good things with it, but it could also go horribly wrong. The first wrong thing that they did was the casting, when I saw who they cast as Jace, I was really upset, but how where they to cast the guy that everybody imagines differently in their head? It was impossible, after seeing the movie I decided that who they cast did a good job with it. Although they did a good job casting Clary, Simon, and Magnus, I didn’t think that they did a good job casting Alec. He looked too old. The movie itself veered horribly from the book. It started off from the same place, used the same characters and even had some quotes from the book, but the story changed drastically. Even the ending was only  barely similar to how the book ended. I have no idea how they are going to do a next one with the way that they messed up the ending. Overall the movie was enjoyable to watch despite the differences between it and the book.
