Is Shelter base on Bear, Otter and the kid?

Recommended Posts

Jochie

I saw this film (Shelter) years ago and now I read preview of Bear, otter and the kid the plot sounds similar. I'm curious if they actually the same story. I really like Shelter and love to read /watch the continuous of the story

It is not connected. The author may have been "inspired" by Shelter.

I just done with the book. It's really the same characters with different names. I really like it, it's like reading the extended version of the film :D

i saw a really 'in rage' review on goodreads about how the book is totally the same with the movie. i haven't read the book so i don't know. but i freaken love the movie. just wanna throw my 2cents here. leave it or take it. but that review is kinda ridiculous to be honest. art is always 'inspired' by something. if it's feels/looks similar it might be a coincidence unless you have proved to say otherwise. glad you liked the book too. t.j.klune is one of great mm writers i think

I totally agree with you. I read that rage reviews on good reads too, but hey I really love this movie, it's on my top lists of BL movie (I lost count how many times I watched it)! and the book is nicely written. I really like the sense of humor of the author. And like I said, it's like reading the extended version of the film which makes me happy to know more about this guy's. What make me upset is it took me 10 years to find this book!

ps: the character is 8 years different in age and in the book the older one name's Oliver. Sounds familiar?
