    I am also into reading novelized movies aside from watching adapted movies I tend not to be content with watching movies with my mouth agape I want to understand the whole story completely, for there are times that I can t follow the dialogues because I m not much familiar with accent with which characters speak.Billy Elliot is the only movie that comes to my mind when someone asks me what my favorite movie is It is a British dance drama film about an eleven year old boy desiring to be a professional ballet dancer However, both his father and brother are inculcated in the negative stereotype of the male ballet dancer Males into this kind of art in western society in the early 19th century were said to be weak, effeminate, or homosexual In short, all boys in his countryside are supposed to do things only for males So, it is a big decision for Billy, especially both his father and brother are miners struggling against the government s plan to close all coal mines.Reading the novelized movie has made me love the movie The novel and the movie have the same scenes The dialogues became crystal clear to me The characters voices were even echoing through my ...

    Originally reviewed at reason why I picked up this book is that Billy Elliot is one of my all time favourite films and I was really intrigued by the fact that it s been released as a novel Since it s related to my thesis work I ll have to start working on in the next few weeks and it s been a while since I ve seen the film, I decided to combine work with pleasure and read Melvin Burgess s novel To be honest, I found Billy s narration quite strange at first and I thought it wouldn t live up to my expectations after all but I couldn t be further from the truth Burgess s novel is just as good, if not better, than the film and I was in tears all the way to the end.What I loved about it the most is the fact that it s narrated by several different people Most of the time it s Billy who s speaking but there are chapters that are told by either Billy s father, brother, or his friend Michael I loved the contrast between these chapters, especially those of the father s and his two children The way we see things from a twelve year old s point of view at first and then from a...

    Billy Elliot was a nice and quick read, but I was hoping so much from it I definitely liked how the story went on and the fact that it was easy to read I enjoyed how it handled family and kind of LGBT issues, how it proved stereotypes wrong On the downside, nothing was explained I understand that it was origin...

    There isn t actually all that much to say about this story The entire story should serve as a reminder that everyone should stay themselves and life isn t about living the way others want you to, but the way you want to The ending is a bit predictable even though I anticipated a slightly different one for a few chapters There are several POV s and each adds something to the story Billy s POV was my favourite and Tony s my least favourite The season this book reminds me of Strike season The year is 1984 Miners are striking and one miner s son discovers that he isn t interested in boxing or any of that He wants to dance Ballet, to be specific A dance that most considered unmanly at that time There are so...
