Book against Movie

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on January 8, 2008 by tahamir



The similarities in the book and the movie are that the book and the movie are they both have some events were the same, for example the meetings in the Boston Observer. Another event was the final meeting of the Sons of Liberty. A few other key events were Johnny going to court, and his clame of kinship to Mr. Lyte. Other things that were similar were the key characters from the story: Johnny, Rab, Cilla, Mr. and Mrs. Lapham, Paul Revere, Mr. Lorne. The dress of that time and also the speech at that time were also the same as described in the book.


There were many major differences between the movie and the book.. One difference was that the character of Johnny. Johnny in the beginning of the book was a very proud person who was proud to be a silversmith and looked upon others as inferiors to him, but in the movie he looked and sounded as if he was a normal and sensible boy who all he really wanted to do was be a good silversmith and wasn’t prideful at all. Another difference was that some major characters were missing some of them were: the other two Lapham apprentices, Isannah, Madge, and Dorcas, Lieutenant Stranger, and John Adams. Another key difference was how the events happened for example the way Johnny burned his hand and another one was that Johnny saw Rab at Lexington before Rab got shot. Another thing was that in the book Cilla worked for the lady Lavinia Lyte, but in the book she worked at the Afric Queen., These differences were made I think because the book was too long too be put into a film.
