Hubby and I went on a date Friday night. We went to see Insurgent and to dinner. I really liked the movie (the burger we split was good too)!
Hubby sent me an article this morning about how different the movie was from the book. I read the series years ago. I don't remember the details of the book. I do remember most of the major events though.
I've learned (the hard way) that I enjoy book to movie adaptations better if I do not reread the book before I see the movie.
I have wasted many a movie sitting there saying "That didn't happen in the book", "Why couldn't they keep it the way it was in the book?", "Well that was just plain stupid!", "Seriously! Did the screenwriter even read the book?" etc, etc, etc. Basically driving my husband crazy during the movie. Bless him!
It all started with Hunger Games. There were so many other books that I wanted to read that I didn't take the time to reread Hunger Games. I LOVED the movie. So my new journey began.
I don't reread books that are coming out as movies. It's crazy how much more I enjoy the movies when I don't reread the book.
So my question that will be to the world changing: Do reread books before seeing the movie?
