You Are the Apple of My Eye (Novel)



You Are the Apple of My Eye (the movie) is the movie that I have been recommending to my friends recently. I like it so much as I rated it as a 5 stars movie.

Thanks to my cousin. She saw my blog and knows that I am planning to read the novel version. She has the novel so she lent to me.

I have just finished reading it just now. Well, although I have read it, I am going to buy the book as well I think.

It's a very nice novel! It touches my heart, especially the last few chapter. It's so nice and touching. And I think, I am going to read it again and again.

The story.....
makes me think of a lot of past time.
makes me even love my girl friend even deeper.
makes me appreciate my girl friend and friends even more.
motivates me towards my dream.

One question, is the movie and novel similar?

It's quite similar and quite different as well. (am I telling rubbish? Hehe)

Well, there is an interesting part in the novel which doesn't have in the movie. There is another important girl in Ko Ching-Teng's life besides Shen Chia-Yi.

On the other hand, the novel doesn't have famous blogger, who acts as the best friend of Shen Chia-Yi.

Previously, my friend asked in Facebook on how people think on books written by Giddens. I initially rated 7 marks out of 10. That time, I read only 1 book of him before only. After watching the movie, I told my friend I wanted to take back that 7 marks. I am going to give the rating again after I read more books of him. Now, here is my re-rating, I am rating him 9 marks out of 10!

And now, Giddens Ko becomes one of my idol!

  22. Too bad Giddens didn't release the English version.

    I'm really curious about how he wrote his youth age in the novel. Especially how the conversation going between Ko and Shen Chia-yi after the earthquake; and this might be the important turning point about the story.
