Can you please check my work. Adjectives, adverbs ad comparisons. Use 5 adverbs and 5 adjectives to write a review. Compare an event to the subject of review and use 3 comparisons and superlatives. How did I do?
I try to keep myself busy and not set around to watch too much T.V. Movies however, I do watch now and then. I recently watched a movie after reading the book “Dear John”. I love to read most of the time and if there is a movie after the book I am excited. The movie was very similar to the book, usually the book is always better then the movie. The book seemed to be more detailed in the story then the movie. The movie and the book both made the story a fantastic romantic drama and sad at the same time. The character of John is based on a soldier who falls in love with a college student. The two fall deeply into love within two weeks and their relationship is put on hold while he leaves to complete his service. The two keep in touch through love letters, until they can again be reunited. He comes home for a short while after a year later and then he relisted for war. She however, moved on to another love while he was gone and he came home to nothing after his fathers death. This is a very sympathetic story, both the book and the movie was very touching. I feel the book made the story more real and heart taking. In the book The character Tim has a little brother named Alan. In the movie Alan is Tim’s son. In the Book Savanna “John’s girlfriend” falls in love with Tim. In the movie it says she married him for pity. In the book Tim dies. In the movie Time lives in the end. Those are the only few differences I noticed in the book and movie comparison.
Please list the adjectives and adverbs, comparatives and superlatives you believe you used. Then one of us can check for you.

I used the words Now, Recenlty, Most, Usually, and however. for adverbs. How did I do?
Much better! The only one in your list of adverbs that is wrong is "most."
I've capitalized the adjectives in your first sentences.
