Watch the film or read the book first?
Out of this selection pictured I'm choosing to talk about The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins and Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty.
#Day22 #abookaday! (Well, maybe more than one book, most days lol)
Do you like to see the film first, or read the book?
With The Girl on the Train I read the book as soon as it came out, which I think helped understand the mixed up flashback film version. Aggh!
With Apple Tree Yard, I’ve been holding off seeing this BBC drama production until after I’ve read the book as I do like to read the book first.
So I can picture my own ideas about what the characters look like in my head, before the choices are made for me. Besides, a book always explains what is going on a lot better than a film, doesn’t it? Although, being a bit of a film buff too, I’m not opposed to a good film. When I’ve read an enjoyable book I ALWAYS want to see how well they’ve made the film and if it lives up to the book’s expectations lol
