Crimson Peak: Official Movie Novelization

Crimson Peak: The Official Movie Novelization - Nancy Holder

Movie novelizations are often more miss than hit with me, but every once in awhile, you come across one that enhances the movie it is based on.

 

This is one of those times. I absolutely loved this book.

 

The writing had a very lovely, Gothic feel to it, and the use of multiple POV's also pleased me.  

 

The movie is so visually stunning, and just...ugh, so beautiful, and the novelization only adds to it by expanding on things that were hinted at or implied in the movie. It makes for a very rich story indeed.  I'm especially glad it confirmed my thoughts on Sir Thomas' thoughts/motivations, especially by the end of the movie/book. I'd been afraid I'd been letting my love for Tom Hiddleston cloud my judgement.

 

Anyway, if you loved the movie, then you should enjoy the book. If you've not seen the movie, but are a fan of Gothic romances, I'd say, you might want to give this book a try.
