I stumbled upon this tag over at Kristin Kraves Books, and couldn’t resist doing this post, myself! I would be a millionaire if I received a dollar every time I accused particular aspects of books to be a cliche – and in some cases, I regard the whole book as one! There are a handful of tropes and cliches I don’t mind much, but the majority of which, provoke me to no end. Alright, let’s get to it!
Actions Speak Louder than Words – A book that wasn’t or couldn’t be better than the movie
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. Perhaps I’m being old-school here, but I adored the first Narnia movie, and was honestly, pretty underwhelmed by the actual book. The movie was much more fast-paced, and the action, world construction, and special effects in the movie simply can’t be beat!
