That is only my opinion, but...
I usually like books more than films. They give details and leave the story full, not cut everywhere it can be cut.
So when the whole world around was mad about TV series, I started to read a book.
It was interesting at first. I didn't know the original plot, so every scene was new for me and the holistic world the author had made surprised me.
Then it became a bit boring. You know, that was my biggest problem from first school years - I could not stand history, could not learn history, and just made myself do that because I knew history was important. But all that books based on history or ones wich just remind them... I felt horribly bored while reading them.
And I was bored with this one. I've read all the parts which were available but didn't like it so much I hoped I would like.
This year I've started TV series. And you know, they seemed to be better. Bright picture, suitable emotions on actor's faces... That all made the series being NOT boring.
And that's the only time I liked the film more than the book. Sorry.
