Don't watch it, read it

So I've finally watched "PS I love you" after strong recommendations by friends and promises to see the best movie ever after.. To cut it short, I was disappointed.

Few months ago I finished reading the novel. Exactly couple of weeks after the last book fair. I went there with one of my office colleagues and once she laid eyes on the cover - I found her screaming all the round place (aka Soor El Azbakya), because she finally found her most favorite novel. I followed her passion and borrowed the book.

It was good. At least it wasn't bad. It was not perfect. May be a little bit over good? two little bits over good? nay.. three or four...?
It was good enough to take me out of this world for few hours..

Today I watched the movie by chance, and I thanked God I'm still sticking to my rule.
No to watching a movie before reading its book first (except for boring ones)..
The movie can't be even compared to the original script. There is something about books! The villa I drew in my mind is much better than the ugly flat she was living in. Her friends were much better.. she was more prettier... and well.. I can't really talk these days, but that concludes it all.. The movie is a fail compared to the book..

I just watched P.S . as well, last wednesday or may be Monday after it's been endlessly sitting in my rack also coz it came highly recommended by probably the third or fourth friend, I was extremely disappointed I stopped it 10 minutes earlier than the end, I am not the least bit interested to know how it ended. I played many parts of it audio only while working, I just don't get all that fuss???

Yeah I had the same experience with "Love in the time of cholera" bad movie, amazing novel!

I didn't read the novel P.S. I love you, but I did see the movie and I did like it. Maybe now, I have to read the novel.

I've just watched the movie , and i liked it , maybe you got disappointed cause you read the book first.
Books are better for sure , i don't think i would read the novel though ,cause it's spoiled for me now.
