Booking through Thursday

The theme this week is
'Books and films both tell stories, but what we want from a book can be different from what we want from a movie. Is this true for you? If so, what’s the difference between a book and a movie?'

In general I prefer the books. The film can often accompany the message that, 'it is based on the book', or 'adapted from the book'. In these instances I feel I'm being cheated, something is missing. Now this is the case of most books except Dickens. I find his work very hard going ,so I do watch the films where possible. The BBC's version of Bleak House is a film I enjoyed immensely but I know I'd never finish the book.

Hi Zetor,
I feel the same way as you do about Dickens. He is a very difficult author to follow but I love the movies adapted from his books.

Dickens and Austen are two authors were I often prefer the adaptations to the originals. Happy BTT.
