I caught the last hour or so of "Open House" on TV tonight. And while I perfectly understand that books don't always translate perfectly to screen, and it's often necessary to alter some scenes, combine or eliminate characters, and do things like turn internal monologues into dialog, what I don't understand is completely butchering entire books for no good reason.
Ugh. Glad I didn't bother with the first hour. I'd probably be throwing something at the screen.
