If I had to choose a favorite hobby besides reading, I would choose binge watching television. If I had to pick something besides that, I would pick watching shows/movies based on books and ripping them apart.
I’ve yet to watch something that beats the book. In fact, it’s pretty difficult to even get close to the book. There are some exceptions, such as Harry Potter, but even those could be a disappointment at times. I didn’t like The Hunger Games, Divergent, or Eragon. The only movies I like better than the books seem to be Nicholas Sparks books.
But damn, guys, damn. They really hit the nail on the head with the Outlander series.
I read Outlander last September, but haven’t had a chance to read the rest of the series yet. My husband was on a business trip this week and I thought hey, what the hell, I’m going to rent it from Hastings.
I loved it just as much as I loved the books. The actors they chose were perfect, I’m about 120% more in love with Jamie, and the production quality is fantastic.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, I strongly recommend it! Actually—read the book first. Then watch it. You won’t regret it.
