Musing Mondays is hosted Books And A Beat, where a certain question is asked every week. This week’s question: Have you ever read a book after watching the movie/television version only to find that you don’t like the book as much as the adaptation?
My answer: It’s not often that I watch the adaptation before reading the book but here are some examples:
- City of Bones – I can’t remember if I watched the movie first or if I read the book first? But I know that I like the movie and the tv show much better than I liked the book. I even read the book twice just to see if maybe I was in a reading slump the first time around but nope. It’s just not for me.
- Game of Thrones – The book is good yeah. But possibly just a bit too much high fantasy for me to read.
- The Last Song – After this I realized that Nicholas Sparks books just are not my thing. The movies? Absolutely amazing. The books? Nahh..
- The Walking Dead – I tried getting through the first graphic novel and just couldn’t. It seemed too different to the show and I very much love the show so it was too weird seeing my favorite characters in such a different way.
