It's Kind Of A Funny Story

So I am going to rant for a little while about how annoying it is when people put movie posters on books with already a good cover. It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini is one of my favourite books. I enjoy the story so much and love being able to imagine and put the author as the main character. Coinsidently Vizzini spent some time in a hospital just like his main character Craig. So on with my complaining...yes they are making a movie based on his book, but no they do not need to change the cover to accomidate the movie. The book cover was amazing as it was, I don't need to see random people I don't want to associate with the story on the cover. To me movies based on books are completely different. I try to view them as a movie watcher not a book reader so that I don't get to angry about them (with the exeption of Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, I could complain about those movies for hours). So while I was going to write a review on this book and let people know about the new movie coming out, I'll just let the lame new covers at book stands do that job for me. For anyone who is interested in purchasing this book, please do me a favor and by it with the original cover, you will appreciate it so much more.
Good Cover
Bad Cover
Thank you for listening.
