But it’s not how I imagined it…

The age-old questions: Films or books? or does the film ruin the book?

Although I am a massive lover of books I don’t think it has to be one or the other. I always look forward to seeing the film version of one of my favourite books and whilst I notice the differences (and like to bore Ben with them in the case of the Harry Potter films) they never really bother me. I almost feel like I should be getting annoyed and saying “but it’s not how I imagined it!” but that is actually what I enjoy. I know how everything looks in my head so to see someone else’s interpretation is interesting and adds a different dynamic to the story. I also appreciate the medium of films and understand that things have to be different sometimes in order to create a better cinematic effect.

Books will always be my number one and can’t be “ruined”, for me, by anyone. If I enjoyed it at the time of reading that’s the main thing and nothing that comes after influences that in a negative way.

I have always been a dog person but I adore my little kitten and wouldn’t swap him for anything, just saying 🙂
