I have consumed a vast collection of novels and related films, equally of which I adore. However, there are a few novels for which I confess enjoying the films/ TV adaptations, but just couldn't get into the novels...
I'm sure there are plenty who would disagree and I appreciate they likely have different tastes and expectations to mine.
I guess since film/ TV and writing are separate/diverse media it is understandable that this can happen, when reading and viewing preferences/appetites differ.
How about you?
