Have you ever read a book to get ready for the movie coming out, but when you watch the movie all you can do is compare the two. It’s the most annoying thing because you expected the book but you get a new version of it and sometimes it’s not as good. Sometimes they leave out important characters, or they leave out cool events, or sometimes the message isn’t the same. This will be comparing Devil’s Arithmetic.

One day when Hannah was at a seder dinner she opened the door and then she found herself in the past. Although some believe that Hannah is starting to change and appreciate her Jewish heritage, I know she isn’t. Even though hannah is being called Chaya by Gitl, Shmuel, and others, she really isn’t accepting it.
After reading and watching, Devil’s Arithmetic, there were many apparent things that were very different from the book to the movie. The names of characters, how people lost their lives, and other things were changed when the movie was written. But, the overall themes and feelings of the characters were they same in both formats of the story. Devil’s Arithmetic, written by Jane Yolen that was later turned into a movie in 1999, was centered around Hannah Stern, a young Jewish girl who is sick of remembering. During her family’s Seder, she is transported to Poland during the time of the Holocaust.
What a moment." (Pg 153) I disliked the fact that Theo dissed the girl just because his friend wouldn 't like it. "He wasn 't exactly looking for a girlfriend, and besides, April would be devastated if he began chasing a flirt like Hallie." (Pg 153) I also liked that the Boone 's were intelligent enough to dance around the illegal immigrant thing, save the trial, save Roberto, and give Julio 's family a home. "He explained that his parents were offering the deal of a lifetime.
She is also upset because Walter is giving in to racial tension and calling Mr. Lindner back to negotiate taking money in exchange for not moving into the white neighborhood. Lena immediately snaps back and calls out Beneatha for not learning to care for her brother. In this scene Lena’s maternal instinct really shines through. Even though she is disappointed in Walters foolishness and lack of pride, she knows that Walter is at his lowest point and that persecution and ridicule will not help the situation in any way. She also understands that his pursuit of money wasn't for self interest but to make things better for the whole family.

Hannah’s new name is just one reason why she is rejecting her heritage. Many people are saying that Hannah is starting to accept her new name.
As a child I remember my teacher suggesting that at dinner we should go around the table and have each family member say something that they are thankful for. Much to my disappointment this never happened at my Thanksgiving dinner. This myth made me wonder how the children who's Thanksgiving did not look even close to the myth. Growing up I always had the basic parts of Thanksgiving, Turkey, parade, and family to celebrate with. I wonder how those children who live in poverty or without family feel about
Kingsolver first exposes Leah Price’s newfound argumentative and bold personality, and her opposition towards her father in the following exchange, “”She wasn’t baptized yet,” he said. I looked up when he said this, startled by such a pathetically inadequate observation. Was that really what mattered to him right now—the condition of Ruth May’s soul?” (368).
