I recently saw a trailer for the new movie The Shack. I am rather excited about this movie. I will be at the first available showing and with bells on, I might add! I’ll also have plenty of tissues handy.
When I first found out that they turned one of my favorite books into a movie, I admit, I scoffed. There was no way they could stay completely true to the book. This book has to have been the most raw and enthralling book of fiction I’ve ever read. I read it straight through, cover to cover, over the course of eight hours. Around the sixth hour, I developed a raging headache but that didn’t stop me. I wasn’t just reading, I was in that shack – experiencing everything right alongside Mack, the main character.
I can remember crying my eyes out, throwing the book across the room (subsequently picking it back up), and experiencing great joy from this book. It most certainly is a roller coaster of emotion. How can the movie possibly compare?
So, I watched the trailer and was expecting to find disappointment. Instead, I became excited. The short snippets of scenes in the trailer rang true to the images in my own head. So, here I am, looking forward to March 3, 2017. You should too…
