I’m one of those people who don’t complain about a book that’s made into a movie. Mainly because I can logically see the constraints that a movie has. A book can carry on a lot longer because words are descriptive, where as a movie has a time frame. To me, both mediums tell the story in a different way. Books with words, and movies with visual and audio.
I’d say sometimes, but really I’d be lying, that when I watch a movie I’m generally on the look out for phrases similar to “Based on the book by…” LOL. Which then entails me off on google searching for the book version of that movie. Needless to say, we all know I buy a lot more than I read. A LOT more. Doesn’t stop me from buying, and it never will!
But like I said I enjoy both mediums, so after having watched the movie I know one day I’ll go read the book too.
I was watching a movie based on a true story called Gone in the Night with Shannon Doherty in it (Brenda from 90210) and saw that it was based on a book, so I of course went and brought the book, lol.
