Whether it’s for the television or the big screen book adaptations are everywhere. But are they any good? I suppose this question hangs on another, whether you have read the books or not. For example I absolutely love all three Lord of the Ring’s films and have even sat through all 12 hours and ten minutes of the extended edition films back to back. However I confess to never having read the books.
I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter books and was always disappointed with the films. My daughter now loves them though. However I can see that when you have so much detail and subplots within a story then it can be hard to fit absolutely everything in and also it can he incredibly difficult with a franchise such as Harry Potter with millions of fans to satisfy everyone. I have accepted them as true to the essence of the books and even though I believe they could have been done better I hold my peace with them.
