Black Hole Sun by David McInnis Gill - Review by Saul, Teen Blogger

Posted on August 7, 2015 at 10:50 AM
Setting a book in a sci-fi world can be difficult, especially when looking at how to be consistent with the science and technology. This is even more difficult when trying to set a story on Mars, a planet we know a fair amount about.

I must admit that I went through a bit of shock after watching the movie Insurgent. It has been quite some time since I last read the novel, but I was dead certain that the movie did not follow the book for about half of the time. The differences are significant and in my opinion a bit disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, I love the movie and it has great actions, however, it is relatively shorter and a few minor characters were cut out completely. Moreover, there are enormous plot changes that alter the tone and the atmosphere of the story. Here are a few changes in the movie that I can think of right off the bat:
