Of course, all books are more descriptive. What I liked about the movie is that they actually showed the dream Pony boy had and they also showed Dally robbing the grocery store; something the book doesn't tell. Both the book and the movie are great, and you should watch it, but the book is better. In conclusion as you can tell there are many differences, but there are also many things that are alike between the book and the movie. I enjoyed both the book and the movie, but personally I think the book was better, because the movie left some of the things out that the book had in it.
This next line comes from an online review written by Janet Maslin, titled “Fried Green Tomatoes”, found on the NYT website explaining “The film's overstatement is such that Evelyn has to appear in flowered frocks and stiff hairdos, nibbling candy bars and gazing longingly at her equally rotund husband, to establish the fact that she is unhappy.” This line re emphasizes how Evelyn’s eating habits suggest her current unhappy state. In the movie she explains that she eats because she’s sad, and she’s sad because she eats. Her husband’s indifference to their marriage validates her insecurities, which further fuels the unfortunate cycle. This is a clear
In “Country Lovers” Thebedi’s family is salves to Paulus family. The whit children go to school and get an education and are taught they are superior to the black children that are their salves. In “the Welcome Table” the little old lady wants to go to church but is told this is not your church and is thrown out of the church. We as Americans fought in the Civil War for equal rights for all races.

In neither the book nor the movie did Janie want to marry the old stranger, and she ended up leaving him for another guy, Jody Starks. Because of Jody's constriction, Janie never felt as though she was living her life to her fullest. Both the book and the movie note Janies love and conection with nature. Unlike in the book, the movie missed out on alot of details that the book had had. For one, in the book Janie tells Phobe her story from when she found out she was colored, the movie did not have that in it.
But In 1987 gay marriage was not being thought of, there was no place in America where homosexuals could marry, this gave Jerry more ease in being adamantly opposed to this AIDS positive homosexual who moved home to die. Jerry’s views on the subject where imbedded in him from his upbringing, but that does not make them right. Jerry’s views are an excellent example of home grown
Later in life when Antwone met his mother, she was barely able to speak to him, because of the similarities between Antwone and his father. Even though this must have been hard for Eva Mae to handle, she did allow herself to speak to her son, before she soon after
The book follows the story of a young girl named Tita who longs her entire life to marry her lover, Pedro, but can never have him because of her mother's upholding of the family tradition of the youngest daughter not marrying but taking care of her mother until the day she dies. Tita is only able to express herself when she cooks. I enjoyed this book because it taught me a lot about how one’s traditions can affect your life. This book goes against some beliefs that many people have because “Like Water for Chocolate” is a fiction book, it is believed fiction books cannot teach anything useful. But the lessons I learned are applicable to life and have also provided
The Book just shows us what they are saying and what they are currently doing, it does not bring emotions that the emotions that are being shown in the movie. One of the differences between the novel and the film is that Ruth is agreeing to Walter's decision on buying a liquor store, but mama is set on a house, it had always been a dream that she shared with her husband. Although in the film, Ruth is agreeing with Mama on the new house, and Walter becomes speechless and tries to make mama think that she was the one who crushed his dreams. A major part between the book and the movie is that the movie left out Act III of the book. Act III in the book tells us what happens after the move of the apartment, where they are in there new house, unpacking with joy and happiness.
This causes the animals to flee from him being that he know been exposed to humankind. There is also Ishtar the goddess of love and fertility also the goddess of war. Ishtar tries to influence Gilgamesh to take her hand in marriage but he replies “I would gladly give you bread and all sorts of food fit for a god. I would give you wine to drink fit for a queen. I would pour out barley to stuff your granary; but as for making you my wife – that I will not.” Ishtar acts arrogant going to her father Anu for the bull of heaven and tells him that if he doesn’t give her the bull she will make the dead rise and have more of the undead than the living.
When Madame Khoun returns, Kien tells her about the fight between him and his cousin, “Under the pale streetlights, I showed her the bumps and contusions Tin had left on my back while Jimmy relived the potato story. Her face registered pain and anger, making her skin redden like blazing coal”(174-175). Madame Khoun got very angry because no one would help her or her children. Madame Khoun then marches over to her sisters house to demand an explanation of why this
