In this episode, we discuss book adaptations: the good, the bad, the should, and the please don’t. Whether you believe the book is always better than the film or if you prefer to watch the movie before reading the source material (like Jamie and Harry Potter), this conversation will give you plenty to add to your movie queue and must-reads list.
