Feature & Follow Friday! (#31)


*Fun blog hop feature hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read

Q: Are there any book to movie adaptations where you think the movie is better than the book?


I've only read a portion of Sherlock Holmes but as much as it is a classic I feel the modern British TV adaptation Sherlock tops it, and I'm ridiculously in love with the show. I know, I know, it's not a movie but it is a television adaptation. Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock and Martin Freeman's portrayal of John Watson and the series itself is just brilliant.

  3. Hopping through. Excellent choice! I'm in love with Sherlock the show. (on the actor front I have trouble deciding who I like more - Benedict Cumberbatch or Andrew Scott). It's gotten me to go back and read Sherlock Holmes. I like the stories but probably like the show more.

    1. Yay I love seeing Sherlock fans! Oh man I loveee Moriarty played by Andrew Scott, he is one of my favorite television villains. Once I seen the show I instantly started reading the books and I like them too but seeing it adapted for TV has altered my perception of the story. I keep reading with the actors voices in my head. I love them both though but definitely enjoy the show better as well.

      Thanks for stopping over Alison! I hope you have a fantastic weekend

  5. I've not seen the new Sherlock show but I hear it's really great. :) I also haven't read the books because I was being all high on my horse with my "I won't read stuffy books" superiority complex. lol

    1. If I could recommend only one show that everyone should watch it would be Sherlock. It's one of the most entertaining television shows I've ever seen, and I've watched a lot!
