Book Adaptations. Yay or Nay?

So last night was pretty exciting. I got to attend an early screening of High-Rise (out on 18th March here in the UK & Ireland) with a Q&A session with the director Ben Wheatley!

As some of you know, I have been working as a supporting artist (aka SA) in films and TV for a good few years now. And let me tell you, High-Rise was the best summer job I have ever had! It’s not really the kind of film I would normally choose to watch (ie. It’s neither a RomCom or Disney) buuuuuttt the cast and crew were incredibly friendly (which isn’t always the case in some productions), and I’ve made a few friends for life with some of the other SAs. And yes, Tom Hiddleston really is amazing! (And his bodyguard always had a pack of Oreos to share! Score!)

So anyway, why am I telling you this? I have just realised there are quite a few book adaptations coming out this year. High-Rise being one of them! You can check out some of those adaptations here: http://bzfd.it/1TygWLO

What do you think about book adaptations? Do you like to read the book before the film comes out? Or do you do it the other way around?

    of the storyline. As you can probably imagine, this allows for a great deal of subjectivity in my determination of what constitutes a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ adaptation, but I thought I’d share my thoughts with you lovely people on this anyway!
