Ok, I've been on a tv posting kick lately, but this one has nothing to do with the boys... lol!
Lifetime recently showed four new Nora Roberts movies. Now, I love to read Nora Roberts books, actually I read her JD Robb books too. So, I often watch her movies when they are on tv. One of the movies they showed was High Noon which I just finished reading last month, so yes I realize it was fresh in my mind. But, it really bugged me how many details they altered in the movie. If you have ever read Nora Roberts, you will know that she is very descriptive in not only the situations, but also with the characters. So, when they alter the characters it bugs me, but not as much as when they totally alter some of the senerios that took place in the book. Now, don't get me wrong so I expected to be altered because well they would have been very graphic to put on tv, but still...
I'm not going to stop watching the movies, but it just reminds me more why it is so much better to read the books!
Do you like to watch movies based on books? Do you prefer to read the book first or after?
