Guys, chill, no spoilers here. It’s just that I need to get something off my chest.

So a long time ago, I tried reading “A Game of Thrones”, the first book of the Song of Ice and Fire series.

And I couldn’t even finish the first chapters.

It’s not that the book was bad, it just didn’t work for me. There were too many characters and I couldn’t relate to them. Plus, the flow and pacing was just so damn slow.

It happens, it’s a part of life. Sometimes we don’t like a book that other people love. But what happened next was scary:

Where the book didn’t work for me, the series NAILED it. I LOVE Game of Thrones, the series. Not the books.

Dude, I’m a writer. I take the book over the adaptation at any time of day. Admitting that I preferred the adaptation over the book for the first time in my life felt…wrong. At first, I was terrified.

You know that creeping feeling that tells you something’s off with the Matrix?  Well, that was it for me.

And then I watched The Martian, and I LOVED that book, okay? But the movie was pretty darn great, and I even dare say, AS good as the book.

It’s super easy saying that the book was better. So how about we do the opposite today?

What adaptation felt better than the book to you, and why?
