Though the movie and the book had more differences than similarities, there were positive points along with negatives in each. In the story plot as a whole, I liked the fact that Six was portrayed as a strong, courageous, independent woman who could thrive on her own and pack a punch. She wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty or risk her life to save her planet and ours. The story showed the value of making decisions carefully, especially if something very important is riding on what you choose to do. As a science fiction fan, I appreciate those concepts mixed in with interplanetary war.
My dreams and Sonny’s dreams are a little unheard of and a little odd to the people around us, dreams you would have to experience to believe are worthwhile. Sometimes I don’t believe in myself and the benefits of my goal, and sometimes it is hard to see where I am going. Like the climber hugging the face of the rocky, deadly mountain, I am not in a position to see the top, my goal. I only have my imagination to feel the success, and to design my path to reach it. When things happen that I do not expect, the challenge of absorbing the problem and shaping my life around it stretches my imagination and the abilities of my mind. Whatever stands in our path helps to shape who we are and prepare us for whatever happens next.
