TV series. Because:
- Reese Witherspoon owns the ‘controlling-mother’ role.
- The ending is far more thrilling (and leaves it open for another season) – note that the ending in the book is quite different to that in the TV series.
- The multiple perspectives and the flicking back-and-forth in time work better on screen.
I really like Reese in this but Kerry Washington’s weird overracting ruined it for me. I think however that now I would enjoy reading the book. I guess we all see things differently. – But Reese was amazing!
I’ve not read or watched this, but I saw the trailer and it did look interesting. Now I know I don’t need to read the book first!
I’ve yet to watch the TV series but I do LOVE Reese Witherspoon in everything she does.
I did love the book.
I guess I need to watch this! I read the book a couple of years ago, but honestly, it must not have made that much of an impression (although I know I enjoyed it at the time), because I barely remember anything about it.
I loved the book now I can’t wait to watch the series especially after reading this post.
I’ve been meaning to watch this show for ages. Thanks for the reminder! Glad to know it’s worth a watch.
I enjoyed the book and led a book discussion for my library, but have only watched the first episode of the TV series. I guess it was a free Hulu weekend and I didn’t move fast enough to binge the whole show. I did think Reese was awesome. I loved Kerry Washington in Scandal, although she overacted at times (as did everyone on that show).
I watched the first season of Scandal (and liked it) but didn’t get any further (I have a short attention span for TV shows and rarely get past the first couple of seasons of things!
