I am a huge fan of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I enjoyed the first book in the series the most, confirming, perhaps, that one can only fall in love for the first time once. If you've not read it, put in on your to read list.
Cable channel Starz is adapting the story for television for 2014. Lead actors have been cast, prompting a flurry of comments on the selections among devotees. One concern is whether human actors will match or clash with their mental images of lovers Claire and Jaime.
Another is how true to the original story the episodes will stick. The show True Blood certainly deviated into unrecognizable territory after several seasons.
What's you feeling about screen adaptations of beloved stories? What makes or breaks an adaptation for you?
