We all love books here, but I thought I might start dedicating some posts on Saturdays to highlight one of my other loves – TV!
What I’m watching
The Stranger on Netflix.
Why I’m Watching
The show is based on the book by Harlan Coben. Though I’m generally a fan of Coben, the book was just ok for me. When I saw him on book tour last year, he talked about working on the show and that made me want to watch it. He said that there would be some big differences from the book and he was fine with the changes as he thinks the watching experience should be different than the reading experience. I kind of disagree with that idea, but that’s ok. I’m only two episodes into the show so far and have noticed several differences. The stranger on the show is a woman instead of a man. The show is set in England rather than the US. And there’s a whole new sideplot introduced featuring the kids.
