It’s been a while since you’ve really seen me suffer, hasn’t it?
Part one of their adaptation of The Cuckoo’s Calling starts this Sunday. Apparently it follows the book very closely, which is a problem because when I first saw the trailer I thought it might be okay provided they toned down the racism/classism and changed the ending to remove the glaring plot hole. After all, just getting rid of the protagonists’ internal monologues will make it a hundred times better.
See this tag for my (rather amateurish) coverage of the original.
The next couple of weeks are going to be very busy for me – hence no Harry Potter post for a bit, again – so I don’t know when exactly I’ll get around to this
They’ve also already adapted The Silkworm – which I ragequit – and Career of Evil, which I suppose means I should probably make myself read and review that at some point. They will also be doing the as-yet-unreleased fourth one, Lethal White, which apparently follows directly on from a dramatic cliffhanger at the end of Career of Evil that I almost certainly will not care about and that will almost certainly make no sense.
We’re going to have fun, right guys? Right? Right?
