Generally, I like to read a book before seeing a movie adaptation, but I didn’t do that with the dystopian Darkest Minds movie.
I loved it, and was able to follow the movie’s storyline just fine even though I hadn’t read the book series.
This is a YA book series, but is not just for young adults. I enjoyed it, and I’m sure I’m not the only adult who has. The story doesn’t come across as “childish” at all, but the teen characters are the central figures in the movie.
There are plot twists that surprised me, and they could easily continue the story with a sequel. So, I hope to read the books before the next movie is made. It is entertaining and thought provoking, which is just what I expect from a good dystopian film
The youth are the hope for the future!
