Books and MOVIES are like apples and oranges.
They both are fruit, but taste completely different.
I’m going to remember this the next time I see a movie based on a book. I’ve gotten into the habit of comparing them – a subplot was left out, the ending was different, the actor/actress playing the main character looks nothing like I pictured, etc. I figure I have two choices: watch the movie and enjoy it - or dislike it - based on nothing but the movie itself OR skip the movie and re-read the book instead. I’m not sure if this new system will work but I’m going to give a try, starting with King’s Under the Dome, which comes out on TV this summer…
